Sandra (Marion Cotillard) has just returned to work after recovering from a serious bout with depression. Realizing that the company can operate with one fewer employee, management tells Sandra she is to be let go. After learning that her co-workers will vote to decide her fate on Monday morning, Sandra races against time over the course of the weekend, often with the help of her husband, to convince each of her fellow employees to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses so she can keep her job. With each encounter, Sandra is brought into a different world with unexpected results. [IFC Films]

"Two Days, One Night is a small miracle of a movie, a drama so purely humane that it makes most attempts at audience uplift look crass and calculated by comparison."
- A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club
"A tense dramatic situation and a subtly magnificent central performance from Marion Cotillard add up to an outstanding new movie from the Dardenne brothers."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"The Dardennes know how to tell low-key stories effectively, and Cotillard’s Academy Award-nominated performance builds toward the unexpected ending."
- Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
"As a parable on karma, capitalism and Darwinian corporate politics, "Two Days, One Night" can often feel brutal. As a testament to connection, service, sacrifice and self-worth, it's a soaring, heart-rending hymn."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Cotillard is magnificent, her luminous eyes reflecting a soul in crisis. The Dardenne brothers have created a film for its time, bristling with peril and alive to every flicker of human decency."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This is a small, compassionate gem of a movie, one that’s rooted in details of people and place but that keeps opening up onto the universal."
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
