The Measure of a Man

In cinemas June 30 (win 1 of 10 double passes)

"This film is a testament to human resilience and decency" David Stratton


The iconic actor Vincent Lindon stars in this moving social drama that won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2015. Lindon plays Thierry, a middle-aged man, long out of work and short on prospects. His is a precarious existence, surviving with his beloved wife and son on meagre state benefits while subject to the corroding humiliation of pointless job interviews and skills training. When Thierry finally does land a job as a Head of Security he is thrust into a world of stark moral choices in which he discovers that his job not only pays, it costs.

Acclaimed director Stéphane Brizé (Mademoiselle Chambon) coaxes assured performances from an ensemble cast of non-professional actors who complement the veteran Lindon’s stunning role. Combining touching moments of unforced comedy with gripping tension, The Measure of a Man is an enthralling exploration of one man’s struggle for dignity in the fraught world of the economically marginalised.

"Tremendous. Excellent… superbly composed and performed." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
'...at once compassionate, engrossing from start to finish, and utterly relevant.' Time Out
"An all-consuming lead performance from Lindon." The Hollywood Reporter
"Powerfully affecting... Compelling. A sharp and devastating force.Variety
