Two Days, One Night (Deux Jours, Une Nuit)

£6 Mondays at the Barbican.

From the filmmaking duo the Dardenne Brothers, who have previously won the Palme d’Or at Cannes twice, comes a much anticipated collaboration with actress Marion Cotillard.

Cotillard plays Sandra, a lowly worker at a solar-panel factory, who is faced with redundancy unless she can persuade the majority of her 16 co-workers to forgo their annual bonuses of €1,000. The film traces her dogged determination to convince her colleagues to choose unity and compassion over personal advantage. But these are struggling workers with families, not board members or CEOs, making the outcome far from certain …

The Dardenne Brothers career has its roots in documentary filmmaking, and their movies are known for their handheld camera style, along with a focus on individuals at the margins of society. Their previous films include 2011’s ‘The Kid with a Bike’, as well as ‘Rosetta’, ‘L’Enfant’ and ‘The Promise’. This is their first movie with a ‘star’ actor.

We’ll aim to go for a drink after the screening to discuss the film.

Tickets can be booked (here)

I’ll send out an e-mail with meeting details to all those who have RSVPed shortly before the event.

    Good pick indeed! A very humane and topical drama that begs for discussion upon leaving the theatre

  • Aminda B.

    is it possible to get ticket at the door? be nice to sit with some of the group

    August 24, 2014

    • Gavin

      It is possible to buy a ticket on the day, but there is always the risk that they may sell out. Quite a few members have detailed their seat location in the comments below, so you could aim to get a ticket in one of these areas.
