The Measure of a Man

In a compelling performance that won him Best Actor at Cannes, Vincent Lindon plays laid-off factory worker Thierry who’s been unemployed for over a year and who has endured dashed hopes and constant rejection in his search for work, not to mention humiliating job-seeker training sessions. When he finally lands a job in security at a big-box supermarket, he is forced into situations where he must make decisions that go against everything he believes in. ‘A companion piece to the Dardenne brothers’ recent Two Days, One Night in its strong sense of labour and justice in an often unjust economy… powerfully affecting social drama.’ (Variety)
