Force Majeure

24 Apr 20153 Jan 2016

A model Swedish familyhandsome businessman Tomas, his wife Ebba and their two beautiful childrenare on a skiing holiday at a high-end resort in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular, but during lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

A critical favourite at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard category, Force Majeure is a wickedly funny and precisely-observed black comedy that marks Ruben Östlund as one of Europe’s most piercingly intelligent filmmakers.
