Q&A with Juliette Binoche on March 5
Famed journalist Marianne Winckler (Juliette Binoche) goes undercover to investigate the exploitation of cleaning people in the north of France, eventually landing a job on a ferry. As she learns more about the plight of these workers on the margins, Marianne grows closer to her new comrades—while simultaneously beginning to harbor concerns that she’ll be complicit in their exploitation when she returns to Paris and writes a book about her experiences. A longtime passion project for star Binoche, Between Two Worlds takes inspiration from investigative journalist Florence Aubenas’s 2010 best-selling nonfiction book The Night Cleaner; the writer would only agree to let it be adapted by the great French novelist Emmanuel Carrère, who co-wrote and directed this feature—his first since 2005’s acclaimed La Moustache.
