Watch: Marion Cotillard in Official US Trailer for 'Two Days, One Night'
"Put yourself in my shoes." IFC/Sundance Selects has debuted the official US trailer for the Dardenne Brothers' Two Days, One Night, starring French actress Marion Cotillard (seen in The Immigrant, The Dark Knight Rises). The drama follows Cotillard as a humble worker as she tries to convince her colleagues to vote for her to keep her job, at their own expense. It premiered in Cannes, play at Telluride, TIFF and the New York Film Festival, and will arrive in theaters this December. Even if you're not a Dardennes Brothers fan (yet), this is one of the better films this year. It's only 90 minutes, moves swiftly, and comes loaded with an inspirational punch at the end. Plus it's just good to support the latest Dardenne Bros film while it's out.
Here's the new US trailer for the Dardenne Brothers' Two Days, One Night straight from IFC:
Description from the film's YouTube listing: "Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne continue to mine the lives of individuals faced with potentially tragic consequences in this powerful drama. Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard is impressive as Sandra, a woman who returns to work after suffering from depression to find out that her colleagues have chosen to take a bonus at the expense of her job. She has just one weekend to change their minds. What follows is arguably the Dardenne Brothers' greatest cinematic achievement to date." Two Days, One Night is the latest from French filmmaking brothers Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne, of the films The Kid With a Bike, Lorna's Silence, Darkness, L'Enfant, The Son, Rosetta and The Promise previously. The film was already released this France in May after first playing at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film premiered at Cannes 2014, and won the ICS Cannes Award. It will also play at TIFF 2014 and the New York Film Festival. IFC/Sundance Selects will release Two Days, One Night starting December 24th.
