Two recent films—Something, Anything and Two Days, One Night—have just become available now on various View On Demand services like Netflix, iTunes, Vudu.com, YouTube, and Google Play. And they’d make a memorable double feature, due to all of the things they have in common.
For example, they’re both about women who suffer crises of conscience in relation to their day jobs. That may not sound like the most compelling big-screen subject, I know. But give these movies a chance. I saw all of the Oscar hopefuls, and none of them have stayed with me as powerfully as these unpredictable, suspenseful, and richly rewarding films. Their central characters—Peggy and Sandra—might challenge you, as they challenged me, to consider how you would handle ethical challenges like those that they face in these films.Read my full comparison of Something, Anything and Two Days, One Night, at The High Calling.
