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.
