Life seems wonderful for Swedish couple Tomas and Ebba and their picture-perfect family on a ski vacation in the French Alps. But when a controlled avalanche comes too close for comfort, their marriage mired in complacency begins to unravel in this intricate, darkly comedic psychodrama. Touching on gender roles and the inexplicable craziness present in all of us, Force Majeure is Sweden’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards.
