Arta Dobroshi is hypnotic as Lorna in this 2008 Cannes Film Festival winner by the Dardenne brothers. Lorna and Sokol (Alban Ukaj) are two Albanian immigrants who dream of leaving their dreary jobs in Belgiumto fulfil their dream of opening a café.
But to do so, the pair require money and permanent resident status and Lorna falls under the thumb of a small-time gang boss when she participates in a sham marriage to her heroin-addict room mate and becomes part a complicated scheme that will supposedly benefit them all.
