The Louisiana Film Society and the Louisiana International Film Festival will present a free screening of “Two Days, One Night,” a French-language drama starring Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, at Cinemark Perkins Rowe.

Written and directed by Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, the film chronicles a woman’s weekend quest to keep the job she desperately needs, for herself and her financially stretched family. Cotillard’s performance in the film earned her a best-actress Oscar nomination.
