1:00PM: A Conversation with Marion Cotillard
One of the most exciting French actresses today, Marion Cotillard, who won an Academy Award playing Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, stars in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night, a film that is at once an unforgettable drama and a tough ethical inquiry.
Two Days, One Night will then be shown that same day at 3PM and again on October 6, at 9PM.
If you’re in New York this weekend, don’t miss it!
