Description

What would you do if you knew that earning your next bonus at work would cost one of your coworkers their job? Marion Cotillard stars in this masterful social-realist drama from acclaimed duo Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (“The Kid with a Bike,” TCFF 2012), set in the working class streets of Belgium. A mother of two, Sandra (Cottilard) receives news that her company has voted to downsize her, and she only has the weekend to convince her 16 coworkers at the solar power plant to vote for keeping her job instead of the extra pay they’ll receive if she’s cut. With an uncanny ability to turn human dramas into edge-of-your-seat thrillers, the Dardenne brothers once again deliver one of the best films of the festival—at once devastating and full of humanity.
