TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT
DEUX JOURS, UNE NUIT
2014, Sundance Selects, 95 min, Belgium, Dir: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne

Following a hospital stay, Sandra (a profoundly moving Marion Cotillard) is told she has lost her factory job - and that the only way she can get it back is to persuade her co-workers to give up their annual bonuses. Over the course of a weekend, Sandra confronts each of them individually to win their support before time runs out. “Rich in the Dardennes’ favored themes of work, family and the value of money, and infused with the suspense of a ticking-clock thriller … the Dardennes once again find a richness of human experience that dwarfs most movies made on an epic canvas.” - Scott Foundas, Variety. In French with English subtitles.


KID WITH A BIKE
2011, 87 min, France/Belgium, Dir: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, the Dardenne brothers’ latest is the story of a feisty 11-year-old who must overcome being abandoned by his parents. In French with English subtitles.
