Official Stills from the Upcoming Belgium Drama "Two Days, One Night"
IFC Films recently released stills for their upcoming release "Two Days, One Night". The film was an official selection of 2014 Cannes Film Festival, 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and 2014 New York Film Festival. The film stars Marion Cotillard and Fabio Rongione.
"Two Days and One Night" hits theaters in limited release on 12/24.
For the first time, the Dardenne Brothers have teamed with a major international star, Academy Award ® winner Marion Cotillard, and the result is another masterwork of humanism. Sandra (Cotillard) has just returned to work after recovering from an illness. Realizing that the company can operate with one less employee, management tells Sandra she is to be let go while the remaining employees will each receive a bonus. Over the course of a weekend, Sandra, often with the help of her loving husband (Fabio Rongione), races against time to convince each of her fellow co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses in order for her to keep her job. With each encounter, Sandra is brought into a different world with unexpected results while her fate hangs in the balance. The Dardennes have brought an extremely relevant social inquiry and turned it into a powerful statement on community solidarity.
