Event description

Description

On Tuesday, February 20, Scandinavia House will be screening a double feature event of films by Ruben Östlund: The 2014 film Force Majeure and this year's Oscar Contender for Best Foreign Language Film, The Square.

This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family – handsome businessman Tomas (Johannes Kuhnke), his willowy wife Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli), and their two blond children – on a family skiing holiday in the French Alps. On a perfect, sunny ski day, the family is enjoying lunch at a mountainside when disaster strikes — an avalanche threatens to bury them along with diners at a mountainside restaurant.

As people flee in all directions and as his wife and children panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch. Force Majeure questions some of our guarded truths: What if you learn that you are not the person you thought you were?

118 min. | In Swedish, English, and French with English subtitles.
