Cannes 2015: 'The Measure of a Man' Review

It may not be one of the very best films at this year's Cannes, but The Measure of a Man is a movie that's stayed with me, which sometimes at a festival is higher praise. It stars Vincent Lindon as a 50-something man who's been unemployed for about two years, desperate to find work to support his family. This French drama studies how that quest weighs heavy on the character -- the movie is a small little gem of a character study. I reviewed The Measure of a Man for Paste.
