Like a gallic take on Ken Loach, this gritty yet good humoured fact-based drama stars Juliette Binoche as Marianne, a writer researching insecure work, who takes a cleaning job undercover on a cross-channel ferry. The work is gruelling: low pay, long hours, unsympathetic management. The staff are mostly women, and Marianne becomes especially close to Chrystèle (Hélène Lambert, one of several non-professionals playing versions of themselves), a single mother. But Chrystèle is suspicious of Marianne’s cover-story and a falling-out is inevitable. The film was a passion-project for Binoche, who pursued the journalist (Florence Aubenas) whose investigative book (The Night Cleaner) formed the basis for the story.

Certainly, this picture ticks plenty of social realist boxes. But there's a satisfying added depth born out of the persuasively fleshed out performances and the focus on female friendship
