This July, World Movies showcases two exquisite films from French starlet and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, starting on Bastille Day!
Little White Lies (France, 2010) – Tuesday 14 July 8.30pm
With an all-star cast and killer soundtrack, this is France’s answer to The Big Chill. When Ludo is left in a coma, his friends gather together for a vacation where passions and truths come to the surface.
Two Days, One Night (Belgium, 2014) – Wednesday 15 July 8.30pm
For the first time, Belgian directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne team up with Marion Cotillard, 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. Realising 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 in this powerful statement on community solidarity.
