At the age of 51 and after twenty months of unemployment, Thierry (Vincent Lindon) starts a new job in security at a supermarket that soon brings him face to face with a moral dilemma.

How much is he willing to accept in order to keep his job is the central question that Measure of a Man (La Loi du Marché) addresses.

For his role as Thierry, Vincent Lindon, who was the only professional actor in the film, was awarded the Palme for Best Actor at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, as well as the César for Best Actor in 2016, the French equivalent of the British BAFTA.

Best Actor, Competition, Cannes Film Festival 2015

César Award for Best Actor, France, 2016

Special Mention, Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Cannes 2015
