This fall, Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard will make a play for a second nomination once again.
The actress – who many believe would, at the very least, court Oscar at his own party again a couple of years ago, for her Golden Globe-, SAG-, and BAFTA-nominated turn in Rust and Bone, only to...not – will be starring in Two Days, One Night, a new drama directed by Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne (The Kid with a Bike).
The film will zero in on a woman who, when faced with unemployment, spends an entire weekend trying to talk her co-workers into giving up their bonuses so she can be kept on the job.
Check out the trailer and do keep the film in mind this coming season. Cotillard was amazing in The Immigrant (another option for her come the next awards season), which is to say that she truly has become one to watch in every film she makes.
Like, Cotillard, to me, is like a modern-day, French Sophia Loren in that she is so good, and so adamant and capable to make Hollywood movies like Inception and Contagion and The Dark Knight Rises and then go back to Europe and work on this kind of stuff.
I kinda like her all that much more for it.
