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.

What a modern tale. Looks heartbreaking.

Yup, that's kind a story that belongs in our time and there should be more of this...

Now this is what I'm talking about! I totally agree with Movie Bear below. I still am reeling from this woman's Oscar winning role; it was one of the best performances I've ever seen...and I'm an old dog. She is such a beautiful woman and to see her change in the Rose film and now to see her look in this film, without make-up playing just a working class woman. I can't wait. She was also excellent in The Immigrant. One of the best actresses to come down the pipeline in a very long time. And of course, wouldn't you know it, she isn't American and continues to do films like this that Hollywood simply has no interest in doing. Now isn't that something? I hope she stays away from the Nolan's and the big Hollywood movies, but it's her life. I'll just avoid those and wait for gems like this one seems to be.
