Two Days, One Night 2014 15

95 mins Director. Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (two-time winners of the Palme d’Or) return with their most urgent film yet, a powerful critique of capitalism starring Marion Cotillard as a woman who has one weekend to convince her work colleagues to forego their bonuses so she can keep her job.

Praised at this year's Cannes Film Festival as arguably the Dardennes' greatest cinematic achievement to date, Two Days One Night is at once a highly tense, humane drama and a towering critique of the dog-eat-dog individualism engendered by economic downturn.
