Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2015, ‘The Measure of a Man’ is a powerful portrait of economic injustice from French director Stéphane Brizé and stars Vincent Lindon - the only professional actor in the film.
After an extended and demeaning job search, 51-year-old Thierry finally lands a role as a security guard in a supermarket. But he's soon faced with a moral dilemma. Thierry must make ends meet, but at what cost to his integrity?
A tough social drama in the mould of Ken Loach.
★★★★ "This is a film whose subtleties and nuances accumulate; Lindon’s performance won him the best actor award at Cannes in 2015, and it was well deserved" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
★★★★ "Uncompromisingly authentic, impeccably played and quietly compelling" - Patrick Peters, Empire
