The Measure of a Man, DVD



Vincent Lindon stars in this French social drama co-written and directed by Stéphane Brizé.

Having been laid-off more than a year ago, 51-year-old former factory worker Thierry Taugourdeau (Lindon) is increasingly struggling to make ends meet with his small monthly unemployment supplement.

Trying desperately to provide for his wife (Karine De Mirbeck) and disabled teenage son (Matthieu Schaller), Thierry's lengthy search for work finally leads him to become an in-store security guard at a large supermarket where he is tasked with monitoring the store's CCTV system and deterring any potential thieves.

How will he cope with dealing with his fellow desperate citizens who are also just trying their best to make ends meet?
