Did you hear the one about the Force Majeure remake with Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus that screened at this year’s Sundance and was described by our own A.A. Dowd as a “kinder, gentler” take on Ruben Östlund’s famously bone-dry comedy of male ego in collapse? That’s not a joke, we’re actually asking if you’ve heard about this Downhill movie.


Well, now you have. And if you’d like to see how American sensibilities have reshaped this contemporary cringe-comedy classic—and you live in Chicago—then you’re in luck: We’re giving away admit-two passes to an advance screening of Downhill on Monday, January 10 at 7:00 PM at our usual haunt of the AMC River East 21. To enter to win yours, simply follow this link and fill out some basic information. If you jump out of your seat and flee the theater in the middle of the avalanche scene, though? That’s on you.
