A wickedly funny and precisely observed drama about a model Swedish family on a skiing vacation in the French Alps. When an avalanche threatens tourists and the Swedish dad takes off in terror, his family's world is turned upside downe. Written and directed by Ruben Östlund. Winner of the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival. "One of the highlights of 2014. FORCE MAJEURE is both funny and sad, often in the same glance-averted instant. See it with someone you'd trust to stick around during an avalanche." — Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune. "Filmmaker Ruben Östlund shifts gears from humor to psychological thriller, redefining courage and family in the process. FORCE MAJEURE is a jolt. You won't know what hit you." — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. In Swedish and English; subtitled. (Rated R, 118 min.)

Two young Romanian women who have loved each other since meeting as children in an orphanage are rejoined at an Orthodox convent after spending years apart. One believes she has found a refuge in faith, but the other wants them to run away together to Germany. Eventually, the threat of exorcism comes between them. Directed by Cristian Mungiu (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS). “Mungiu’s Beyond the Hills moves so effortlessly through the gnarly intersection of love, loss, God and godlessness that you barely notice how much he’s doing, and with such effortless grace.” — John Anderson, Newsday. In Romanian; subtitled.  (Not rated, 140 min.) 

Tickets may be purchased online or at the door one half hour prior to first show of the day.
