While you might think the casting of a major star could potentially change the format of the niche the Dardenne brothers have carved out—telling intimate, often wrenching, human dramas—that's not the case with "Two Days, One Night." While Marion Cotillard is in the lead role, it's still very much a small-scale story, and one that earned almost universal rave reviews earlier this year at Cannes. And now more images have arrived of the face that powers the picture.

Two Days, One Night, Marion Cotillard

While you might think the casting of a major star could potentially change the format of the niche the Dardenne brothers have carved out—telling intimate, often wrenching, human dramas—that's not the case with "Two Days, One Night." While Marion Cotillard is in the lead role, it's still very much a small-scale story, and one that earned almost universal rave reviews earlier this year at Cannes. And now more images have arrived of the face that powers the picture.

Co-starring Fabrizio Rongione, the premise is a simple one, following a woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. And the result, as usual, is terrific, with Jessica Kiang falling for the movie on the Croisette writing in her review she was "completely immersed" in the picture's "plain-spoken yet impossibly resonant rhythms practically from the first frame." It would seem the Dardennes haven't missed a beat.

No date yet, but Sundance Selects will release the film in the U.S. Pictures below.
