In "The Celebration," Danish director Thomas Vinterberg explores the explosions that occur when family tensions reach critical mass. The film, which played at the New York Film Festival and won a special jury prize at Cannes, explores the ties (and nooses) that bind when a Danish family reunites at a country retreat to commemorate the family patriarch's 60th birthday. Close on the heels of one sister's suicide, the patriarch's three surviving children bear their own baggage as they buckle under the weight of a loss born of dark deeds. What begins as a birthday party evolves into a bloodletting when Christian, the eldest son, decides he can no longer keep silent about his father's past transgressions.
