Numéro une / Number One

by Tonie Marshall Gala Premieres

By means of hard work and ambition, engineer Emmanuelle Blanchey has earned her place at the top. She is the only woman on the board of directors for France’s leading energy company. While her husband and children have her back, her professional life remains a constant fight for respect in a male-dominated sector – for example by conversing with Chinese guests in Mandarin during a business lunch. One day she receives a tempting proposition: the influential business network ‘Olympe’ wants her to be the director of another large company. In order to leap, however, Emmanuelle must put everything she has built on the line. Perfectly cast with Emmanuelle Devos, Director Tonie Marshall has succeeded in creating a brilliant drama about sexism in corporate structures.
