Still from “Force Majeure”

Films We Like, in partnership with Video Services Corp, is excited to be releasing Ruben Östlund’s award-winning feature FORCE MAJEURE for home viewing in the coming weeks.

FORCE MAJEURE is still playing in Canadian theatres, and it will be available on iTunes Canada on January 20, 2015. Video Services Corp has set the film’s DVD and Blu-ray release for February 10, 2015, at the suggested retail price of $26.98 and $29.98. Both the DVD and Blu-ray include an interview with writer/director Ruben Östlund and actor Johannes Bah Kuhnke, as well as an AXS TV look at FORCE MAJEURE.

Last month, it was announced that FORCE MAJEURE made the shortlist for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the upcoming 87th Academy Awards®. Prior to that, the film won the Cannes 2014 Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards®.

FORCE MAJEURE is an observational comedy about the role of the male in modern family life. A Swedish family travels to the French Alps to enjoy a few days of skiing and to spend some precious time together. However, during a pleasant 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, runs for his life… Reality returns to embarrassed laughter, the anticipated disaster having failed to occur, and yet the family’s world has been shaken to its core. Tomas’ unexpected action leads them to evaluate their roles and assumptions, a question mark hanging over the father in particular. With the end of the holiday approaching, Tomas and Ebba’s marriage hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch.
