Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne received rave reviews at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for this emotionally wrought drama, which features a tour-de-force lead performance from Oscar winner Marion Cotillard. Sandra (Cotillard) is a wife and mother, who works in a solar panel factory. She suffers a nervous breakdown and is forced to take time off from her job. In her absence, her colleagues discover they can cover her shifts by working slightly longer hours and management proposes a 1,000 Euro bonus to all staff if they agree to make Sandra redundant. When she returns to work and discovers that her fate rests in the hands of her 16 co-workers, Sandra must visit each of them over the course of a weekend to try and persuade at least nine of them to reject the monetary bonus and keep her on instead. Many of these co-workers desperately need the proposed 1,000 Euro sweetener for their own families so Sandra faces an uphill battle to keep her job before the crucial vote on Monday morning.
