Our French Film Club screening this month will be Stéphane Brizé’s movie La Loi du marché (Measure of a Man). This moving film tells the story of an unemployed factory worker in working-class France, examining just how much an ordinary working man will compromise his integrity in order to make ends meet.

La Loi du marché was one of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival's highlights and Vincent Lindon has received many awards for what could be his finest performance to date.
