Based on journalist Caroline Michel-Aguirre’s 2019 book, La Syndicaliste follows the story of Maureen Kearney (Huppert), an Irish trade unionist who lived and worked in France for nuclear power company Areva.
Amidst the muddy, intertwined world of politics and energy, Maureen is subject to brutal threats when she alerts politicians and press to secret energy transfer contracts with China, which could result in the collapse of the company.
A compelling thriller, anchored by the inimitable Isabelle Huppert in yet another powerhouse performance.
