Belgian directors and brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne joint effort to illustrate the struggles of the working class comes to life in their film “Two Days, One Night.”
Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard stars as Sandra, a woman who tries to go back to work after battling a bout of depression. Upon her return, her company decides to make a choice about her future employment by leaving it up to her coworkers, who can either vote for her to remain or have her fired and gain bonuses in the process.
From there, it’s a race against time for Sandra to try and convince each coworker, one by one, to sacrifice their monetary reward in order for her to keep her job—all over the course of one weekend.
The Sundance Selects release is Belgium’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Check out the trailer below:
