Opening at The Ross on Friday, February 16, HAPPY END is far from Haneke's best work, yet it still succeeds in forcing audiences to confront -- and uncomfortably consider -- the dark side of human nature. If “HAPPY END” is something of a bad-seed nightmare, it turns out to be an unpredictable one, marked by unexpected flashes of warmth, sympathy and blistering humor. –Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times Haneke's in such tight control of this material that he knows exactly how to mold such nastiness into a maze of tonal possibilities. –Eric Kohn, IndieWire An exceedingly clever, thought-provoking and dark reflection on life, death and family relations. –Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail HAPPY END is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, February 16 through Thursday, February 22. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated HAPPY END R (for some sexual material and language). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. “All around us, the world, and we, in its midst, blind.” A snapshot from the life of a bourgeois European family. Michael Haneke returns with a drama about a well-off French family living in a bourgeois bubble in northern France, oblivious to the human misery unfolding in migrant camps around the port town of Calais, a few miles from their home.
