This is a Reel Talk Presentation

This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family-handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond, pre-teen children-on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down.  The fallout causes the marriage to hang in the balance as Tomas struggles to hold his role as family patriarch. (C) Magnolia Pictures  "...at once a finely-honed dark comedy and a character study of a family in turmoil." -Dominick Mayer, Consequence of Sound

“The word ‘legendary’ gets thrown around a lot these days, but it seems appropriate to apply to The Siegel-Schwall Band.” – Triple Door, Seattle 

Along with bands like The Rolling Stones, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Siegel-Schwall Band was instrumental in the Great Blues Revival of the 1960′s. As house band at the famed Pepper’s Lounge in Chicago, they earned their spurs backing greats like Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Willie Dixon, and pioneered cross-fertilization of the blues with other forms of music. Joining Corky and Jim are bassist Rollo Radford (Martha & The Vandellas, Sun Ra) and drummer Sam Lay (in Blues and Rock And Roll Halls of Fame)

GUEST EMCEE: Tom Marker, DJ synonymous with blues music on Chicago radio for three decades
