"Force Majeure" and "x + y"

Two films, both family-based dramas, that I recommend (if you like this sort of thing).

The first is a Swedish drama that follows a family at a French ski resort for a week long break. On day 2, a controlled avalanche goes wrong whilst the family are having lunch. The drama centres around the reactions of the adults. The dialogue is mainly Swedish but also French and English.

The second film is a British drama. Asa Butterfield plays a maths prodigy who has trouble understanding other people and how to act and react in social situations. At an early age he decides to use his talent to enter the International Mathematics Olympiad. He achieves his goal in his mid-teens.
