“THE MOST ACUTELY OBSERVED COMEDY OF THE YEAR, IF NOT IN SEVERAL YEARS. A breathless black diamond course of social stress and embarrassment.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair “FORCE MAJEURE IS A JOLT. YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT HIT YOU. Director Ostlund shifts gears from humor to psychological thriller with cunning skill.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone “A BRILLIANT, VICIOUSLY AMUSING TAKEDOWN OF BOURGEOIS COMPLACENCY.” – Stephen Holden, NY Times Force Majeure premieres in theaters Friday October 24th. Website: http://www.forcemajeurefilm.com/ A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children—on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but during a 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 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.
