Award winning French labor drama AT WAR, starring Vincent Lindon arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Oct. 15 from Cinema Libre StudioFollowing a NYC and Los Angeles theatrical release in July, AT WAR, the gripping drama about French union workers who battle their corporate bosses to save their jobs, will open on DVD, Blu-Ray, and On Demand on October 15, released by Cinema Libre Studio. An Official Competition selection at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, AT WAR is the third film where director Stéphane Brizé has teamed up with Vincent Lindon as lead actor.

The film had its US premiere at the Chicago International Film Festival where it won Best Screenplay, “for articulating and bringing light to an important political issue which reflects the anxiety of our contemporary society and the precariousness of our livelihood."

Lindon plays Laurent Amédéo, a blue-collar union rep who acts as spokesperson for the 1100 employees of Perrin Industries, an automotive parts plant in southwest France, who have waived bonuses and unpaid hours to keep the operation going for an additional five years. Despite heavy financial sacrifices on the part of the employees and a record profit that year, the distant German management orders the plant closed, having deemed it “non-competitive.” As the film opens, the workers are already two months into a labor strike, halting all operations at the plant to protest its impending shutdown and the move to the cheaper labor market of Romania.

SYNOPSIS: Despite heavy financial sacrifices on the part of their employees and record profits that year, the management of Perrin Industries decides to shut down a factory. The 1100 employees, led by their spokesman Laurent Amédéo, decide to fight this brutal decision, ready to do everything to save their jobs.
