Based on Joseph Conrad's short story, which was first published in 1910, Secret Sharer is a romantic thriller set in the South China Sea aboard a rusting Chinese cargo ship. Konrad (Jack Laskey) is the Polish captain of the Pacific. It is his first command and possibly his last. The Chinese crew abandons ship because they are convinced Konrad intends to deliberately sink the ship in order for his company to collect the insurance money. Left alone on the vessel, Konrad is shocked to discover the body of a young woman tangled up in one of the ship's rope ladders. He pulls the woman aboard and Li (Zhu Zhu) utters two words: "Hide me". The following morning, as dawn breaks, Captain Wang (Leon Dai) and his men board the Pacific looking for Li. They claim she is a murderer and warn Konrad of the dire consequences for harbouring a fugitive. However, he refuses to surrender Li and helps to conceal her as Wang and his underlings conduct a detailed search of the ship and its quarters.

Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne received rave reviews at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for this emotionally wrought drama, which features a tour-de-force lead performance from Oscar winner Marion Cotillard. Sandra (Cotillard) is a wife and mother, who works in a solar panel factory. She suffers a nervous breakdown and is forced to take time off from her job. In her absence, her colleagues discover they can cover her shifts by working slightly longer hours and management proposes a 1,000 Euro bonus to all staff if they agree to make Sandra redundant. When she returns to work and discovers that her fate rests in the hands of her 16 co-workers, Sandra must visit each of them over the course of a weekend to try and persuade at least nine of them to reject the monetary bonus and keep her on instead. Many of these co-workers desperately need the proposed 1,000 Euro sweetener for their own families so Sandra faces an uphill battle to keep her job before the crucial vote on Monday morning.
