Based on the real-life work of journalist Florence Aubenas, Between Two Worlds exposes the challenges facing those in precarious employment in Northern France. Going undercover to research an article, Marianne (Juliette Binoche) enlists for a number of thankless jobs, including cleaner of a cross-Channel ferry. As she learns more about the plight of these workers on the margins, Marianne grows close to her new comrades, especially Christele, a single mother of three. However, as these bonds develop, sooner or later she must face up to the ethical problems of her research methods.

Director Emmanuel Carrere’s third feature takes him into new realist territory. A wonderful array non-actors shine alongside Binoche in a film that digs deep into current social realities.
