Force Majeure, a favorite at this year’s Cannes Festival, is a wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama. It tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba, and their two children—on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. During lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the resort sending people fleeing in all directions. With 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.
