Save to Watchlist

Upon returning to her factory job after a mental-health leave, a young mother (Marion Cotillard) finds out that her co-workers are about to vote on a proposal to eliminate her position in exchange for 1,000-euro bonuses companywide. She only has two days to convince them to forgo the money so that her family can survive. Written and directed by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, Belgian brothers known for their bracingly realistic social dramas, this French-language film poses a classic philosophical dilemma. The intensity of the filmmaking and the emotional power of Cotillard’s performance, however, endow “Two Days” with a rare kind of urgency.
