Saturday night August 29, Sharon, Morgan and I watched Downhill. Sharon and I had seen the movie highlighted on AppleTV over the last couple of months.
Downhill is a 2020 American black comedy drama film directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. The film is a remake of Force Majeure (2014) by Swedish director Ruben Östlund. It stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell as a married couple going through a rough patch after a near-death encounter during a family ski outing.
Downhill had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, 2020. It was theatrically released on February 14, 2020. The film received mixed reviews from critics.
This is a very uneven film. There are a couple of good parts, but it moves in fits and starts. Talking to Morgan and Sharon in the last week, they both enjoyed it more than I did. I don't recommend it.
