Swedish Psychodrama FORCE MAJEURE Arrives February 10 From Magnolia Home Entertainment

force majeureIf Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke ever made an awkward comedy, it may turn out something like Force Majeure, the dark Swedish comedy that received the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.  This Golden Globe nominee is a film about a family vacation that goes awry, following a moment of weakness from one of the family members.  From there, we get a film that studies the characters involved and what to think, given the key event that took place.  That is very vague, but the film is most definitely worth seeking out, despite its strange snub for Best Foreign Film at this years Academy Awards.  Everyone will be able to check out the film for themselves on February 10th.  Continue on to learn more about this upcoming release.



Winner Of “Un Certain Regard Jury Prize” At 2014 Cannes Film Festival, “Must-See Dark Comedy” (Huffington Post) Arrives On Blu-ray™ And DVD February 10 From Magnolia Home Entertainment

FORCE MAJEURE is a 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 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
