A lingering drama about maintaining dignity as a fragile Belgian woman.

Picture yourself going back to work after a long medical absence and learning that your co-workers have voted to release you from your job so they can get a bonus.  You get the option of personally approaching each one and asking them to reconsider their vote.  Lovely.  As Sandra, Marion Cotillard graciously maintains her dignity in this astonishing French movie that perfectly captures the desperation she feels to survive financially and emotionally.  Belgian filmmaking brothers, Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne craft a striking film that will leave you hoping you won’t need to awkwardly beg your own co-workers anytime soon.
