Force Majeure

  • Foundation Coffee House Sevendale House, Lever Street Manchester, M1 1JB (map)
 

 

The sun is beaming and the ski slopes are spectacular for Tomas, his wife Ebba and their two children. However, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down upon the happy diners. As the wall of show gets ever closer, Tomas makes a split-second decision in a moment of panic that will engulf and shake his relationship with his wife and children and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as the family patriarch.

A critical favourite and winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Force Majeure is a wickedly funny and precisely observed black comedy that pierces the stereotypes we hold of what a man should be in the modern world.

"Thrilling and elegant... A must-see dark comedy."
- Erica Abeel, The Huffington Post
