The relationship between IFC Films and Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne began with the 2011 release of “The Kid with a Bike” and also includes the 2016 mystery drama “The Unknown Girl,” but it’s “Two Days, One Night” that remains the centerpiece of this partnership. The 2014 drama stars Marion Cotillard as a factory worker who is forced to convince her fellow employees to give up financial bonuses in order for her to keep her job. Cotillard was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her performance, one of over a dozen acting nominations she received during the 2014-15 awards season. The drama was another foreign-language success for IFC with over $1 million at the U.S. box office.

“Two Days, One Night” and “The Kid with a Bike” are now streaming on IFC Films Unlimited.
