Force Majeure (Turist) at the Mayfair Theatre Ottawa
The feature film Force Majeure by Swedish director Ruben Östlund shows at the Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa on November 10, 11 and 12.
A Swedish family travels to the French Alps to enjoy a few days of skiing. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. With diners fleeing in all directions, mother Ebba calls for her husband Tomas as she tries to protect their children. Tomas, meanwhile, is running for his life... The anticipated disaster failed to occur, and yet the family's world has been shaken to its core, a question mark hanging over their father in particular. Tomas and Ebba's marriage now hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch. Force Majeure won the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2014 and is nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film 2015.
November 10, 11 and 12, 7:00 PM at Mayfaire Theatre, 1074 Bank St. Ottawa.
