Sweden, Denmark, Norway 2014 118 mins.

Picture-perfect Swedes Tomas, Ebba, and their two kids are enjoying a pleasant family getaway at a French ski resort, until an avalanche strikes. Although everyone walks away unharmed, Tomas’ gut reaction to the incident shakes his marriage to its core. Filled with wicked humor and piercing satire, Östlund’s chilling comedy of manners won the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and was this year’s Swedish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. “Sophisticated, stingingly clever, and well-executed. . . crystalline clarity and keenly observant humor.” –The Washington Post.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
