Force Majeure (Ruben Östlund, Sweden 2014)

A perfect Swedish family — handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond, pre-teen children — are on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during lunch at a mountainside restaurant, suddenly events turn everything upside down. As Ebba tries to protect her children, Tomas makes a decision that will shake the family's world to its core.

"This is slender material to build a whole film around, but Östlund turns it into something deep."
Time Out

"Force Majeure" leaves the audience squirming - in all the very best ways.."
Washington Post

"A comedy of passive aggressiveness, a scathing satire of masculinity, delivered with Kubrickian unease"
The Popcorn Junkie
