MOVIE NIGHT: Force Majeure
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on January 8, 2015
To open our 2015 season, join Fresno Filmworks this Friday night, Jan. 9, for one of the most critically acclaimed international movies of 2014, the wickedly funny and precisely observed family drama “Force Majeure.” The film is a Cannes Jury Prize winner, a Golden Globe nominee, and Sweden’s official Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film. Show times are 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. The film Rated R.
FROM THE CRITICS
Dana Stevens of Slate says: “‘Force Majeure’ is intellectually and visually enthralling and often savagely funny. … Director Ruben Östlund’s style is chilly and hyper-controlled, with both dialogue and image constructed in such a way as to pack meaning into every detail.”
