LOUDER THAN BOMBS

UK DVD & Blu-ray release 15 August 2016

The sophomore feature from award-winning Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier (OSLO, AUGUST 31ST (2011)),
LOUDER THAN BOMBS is a compelling ensemble drama that marks the English-language debut from a burgeoning talent.

Three years after her untimely death, an upcoming exhibition celebrating famed war photographer Isabelle Reed (remarkably played by Isabelle Huppert) brings her eldest son Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) back to the family home, forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene (Gabriel Byrne) and withdrawn younger brother Conrad (Devin Druid) than he has in years.

With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently.

Featuring stunning performances from each of the three leads, with impressive support from Druid – in a breakout role – Amy Smart and David Strathairn, LOUDER THAN BOMBS is a thoughtful, engaging and ultimately uplifting examination of grief, loss and fraught family ties.
