“Two Days, One Night” – Jan 18th

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 18th at 4:30pm for Two Days, One Night at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a green coat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

For the first time, Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (The Kid With a Bike, Rosetta) team up with a major international star, Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose), to create a universal story about working class people living on the edges of society. Sandra (Cotillard) has just returned to work after recovering from a serious bout with depression. Realizing that the company can operate with one less 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 in this powerful statement on community solidarity. Also starring Fabrizio Rongione (The Kid With a Bike, Rosetta). Academy Award nominee for Best Actress (Cotillard). (Fully subtitled)

Bethesda Row Cinema features assigned seating. The group will be sitting in Row K, but feel free to sit wherever you like We will all meet back upstairs in the theatre lobby after the movie to head out for dinner and discussion.
