Marion Cotillard (Rust and Bone) received another nomination for her searing, deeply felt performance as a working-class woman desperate to hold on to her factory job in the gripping 2014 drama Two Days, One Night from master Belgian directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (The Kid with a Bike).

Marion Cotillard in Two Days, One Night

Cotillard is Sandra, a wife and mother who suffers from depression and discovers that, while she was home on sick leave, a majority of her coworkers voted in favor of her being fired rather than give up their annual bonuses. She then spends a Saturday and Sunday visiting them each in turn, to try to convince them to change their minds.

From this simple premise, the Dardennes render a powerful, humanist drama about the importance of community in an increasingly impersonal world.

Criterion’s DVD and Blu-ray editions of the movie contain the following:

  • New 2K digital transfer, approved by directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New interviews with the Dardennes and actors Marion Cotillard and Fabrizio Rongione
    When Léon M.’s Boat Went Down the Meuse for the First Time(1979), a forty-five minute documentary by the Dardennes, featuring a new introduction by the directors
  • New tour of the film’s key locations with the directors
    • Trailer
    • An essay by critic Girish Shambu
