    A film about disasters - both natural and man-made.

    Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, FORCE MAJEURE is a darkly hilarious psychodrama set in the picture-perfect surrounds of the French Alps.

    A model Swedish family—handsome, successful businessman Tomas, his lovely wife Ebba and their two blond children— are on a luxury skiing holiday. The sun is shining and the powder is perfection but, during 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 leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.
