Special encore presentation from the 2016 Boston French Film Festival

The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) by Stephané Brizé (France, 2015, 97 min.). Thierry has been unemployed for 18 months when he lands a job as a supermarket security guard. There, he must protect the wealth of his supervisors by prosecuting thieves who can’t afford to buy food. Vincent Lindon’s subtle yet heartbreaking performance earned him a best actor award at Cannes.

“Sly, incisive humanism … this is a film that makes you want to be a kinder person.” – Indiewire
