Two Days, One Night [Deux jours, une nuit]

director: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
starring: Marion Cotillard, Fabrizio Rongione, Catherine Salée

Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard plays Sandra, a young woman assisted by her husband, who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job.

Two Days, One Night was directed by The Dardenne Brothers, who are the most celebrated and decorated filmmaking partners in the world, boasting five Cannes wins and countless other international awards. The film was nominated for The Palme D'Or at Cannes (which the brothers have won three times) and was the winner of a number of other international awards, including several for Best Actress for Marion Cotillard.

 

Why our films have to start promptly at 8pm
Although our films are scheduled to start at 8pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.
