US Trailer for Cannes’ Un Certain Regard Winner FORCE MAJEURE (Sweden’s Oscar Entry)

FORCE MAJEURE (Swedish: Turist) is a Swedish drama film directed by Ruben Östlund, which has been selected as the Swedish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards.

A critical favorite at 2014 Cannes Film Festival Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this 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 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.
