FORCE MAJEURE

A film by Ruben Östlund

IN CINEMAS OCTOBER 16

WINNER – JURY PRIZE, UN CERTAIN REGARD
Festival de Cannes 2014

OFFICIAL SELECTION – SWEDEN, FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
87th Academy Awards

CLICK HERE FOR CINEMAS



An impulsive decision in a moment of crisis – an avalanche – drives a wedge between a husband and wife, in this gripping moral drama and pitch black comedy from provocative director Ruben Östlund (Play), that has become a word-of-mouth sensation at film festivals from Cannes to Fantastic Fest.

Critics have described Force Majeure as “A hilarious takedown of masculinity,” (Time Out New York), “A sardonic, serious, funny, precision-controlled psycho-comedy-drama inspired by the selfishness of our survival instincts,” (Screen) and “By no means a traditional disaster movie” (Variety).

Acclaimed filmmaker Ruben Östlund is being touted as the first Swedish director who is not Ingmar Bergman to win an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards next year.

Force Majeure opens in select cinemas on October 16.

Sharmill Films acquires Xavier Dolan’s acclaimed new film MOMMY for Australasian theatrical distribution in 2015

Sharmill Films is very proud to announce its acquisition of Xavier Dolan’s highly acclaimed new feature film MOMMY for Australasian theatrical distribution in the first quarter of 2015.

A competition title at the Cannes Film Festival, Mommy was awarded the Jury Prize, sharing the honour with French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language. Mommy has since been announced as the official entry from Canada for the 87th Academy Awards to be held next year.

Mommy centres on an explosive 15 year old boy with ADHD and his widowed single mother. But when Kyla, a new neighbour, enters their lives, things begin to change. The film stars Anne Dorval (who portrayed Dolan’s character’s mother in his 2010 feature I Killed My Mother), Olivier Pilon and Suzanne Clément.

The theatrical deal was brokered by Anick Poirier of Les Films Séville and Natalie Miller of Sharmill Films.
