Winner of the Cannes 2015 Un Certain Regard, Rams is the tale of two Icelandic brothers in their 60s who live for their sheep. Farmers Gummi and Kiddi may live right next door to each other, but they haven’t spoken for 40 years. That makes matters difficult when an affliction related to mad-cow disease hits their remote valley in northern Iceland. —Seattle Times
