LOUDER THAN BOMBS
2015, The Orchard, 109 min, Norway/France/Denmark/USA, Dir: Joachim Trier

In director Joachim Trier’s first feature in English, war photographer Isabelle Reed (Isabelle Huppert) - whose work has taken her to the most dangerous places in the world – dies in a car accident just a few miles from her New York home. She leaves a grief-stricken husband, Gene (Gabriel Byrne), and sons Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) and Conrad (Devin Druid). Three years later, working on a retrospective of Isabelle’s photography, Gene tries to enlist his sons’ help, but Jonah is overwhelmed by his marriage and a new baby, and hard-hit teenager Conrad has withdrawn into the world of computer games. “A family drama of extraordinary beauty.” - Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal.
