Best Actress, New York Film Critics Circle

Told with the immediacy of a thriller, the Dardennes’ 2014 award-winner is a viscerally human, profoundly political snapshot of an age of economic insecurity. Ready to resume work after a medical leave, Sandra (Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard) discovers her boss has put her fate in her co-workers’ hands: they can choose either to take her back, or to keep their annual bonuses. With a vote just 48 hours away, Sandra races from door to door to plead with her colleagues to save her job–and her family. 

“[Cotillard’s] may be the most self-effacing, yet bravura performance of the year.” – J. Hoberman, New York Review of Books

“Might be the Dardennes’ masterpiece.” – Bilge Ebiri

Screening as part of “Brotherhood: The Films of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne
