Story


The internationally-acclaimed director of "Together" and "Lilja 4-ever", Lukas Moodysson, presents a globe-spanning, modern family drama in "Mammoth". Gael Garcia Bernal and Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams star in a story of about the rippling effects of life's smallest choices, and the epic ironies that bind us all together. "Mammoth" follows a young New York family that has stumbled into a world of money and big decisions. Leo (Gael GarciĀ­a Bernal), the creator of a booming website, and Ellen (Michelle Williams), a dedicated emergency surgeon live the perfect life with their 8-year old daughter Jackie (Sophie Nyweide). But when Leo travels to Thailand on business, and Ellen begins to see her daughter less and less after her long hours at work, a chain of events is sparked that will have dramatic consequences for everyone.

by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
“..Prospects in the box office would seem to be fairly limited..”
by Richard Mowe [Boxoffice Magazine]
