IN CINEMAS OCTOBER 16
WINNER - JURY PRIZE, UN CERTAIN REGARD Festival de Cannes 2014
OFFICIAL SELECTION - SWEDEN, FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM 87th Academy Awards
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.
