Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #15. Dardenne Bros.’ Deux jours, une nuit

Deux jours, une nuit (Two days, One night)

Directors: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
Writers: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
Producers: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
U.S. Distributor: Sundance Selects
Cast: Marion Cotillard, Olivier Gourmet, Catherine Salée, Fabrizio Rongione

The Dardennes might have dropped “working” with kids, but are still obsessed with the “working” class. As was the case with Cécile De France (The Kid with a Bike), the brothers will do what they do best, straddle their viewers in and make their a-list starlet (Marion Cotillard) dissappear into her character. Two days, One night is what Cannes dreams are made of.

Gist: The film follows 30-year old Sandra (Cotillard) and her husband (Rongione) on their hunt across the city for colleagues prepared to sacrifice their bonuses so she can keep her job.

Release Date: Production began in June of last year, so this will receive a red carpet Main Comp showing in Cannes this May followed by a release by IFC’s Sundance Selects who got on board early.
