A breathlessly tense portrait of modern labour, this French drama stars Laure Calamy as a single mother who hits her breaking point during a nationwide strike.

In Detail

Single mother Julie (César award-winning actress Laure Calamy) works a gruelling job as a head chambermaid in a five-star Parisian hotel.

Julie's daily balance of commuting from her remote suburb into Paris, tenuous childcare and search for a new job to get her out of debt, becomes unmanageable during a paralyzing transport strike in Paris. Laure Calamy gives a one-woman show performance as she is front and centre for nearly every frame of the film. This relentless, heart-in-your-throat, ticking-clock thriller about precarious single-motherhood could not be more timely or more intimate.

As real, and as recognizably stressful, as the genre gets.
