ABOUT THE FILM:
Force Majeure director Ruben Östlund returns with a knife-sharp satire on art, culture and the digital age, which won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Christian (Claes Bang, The Bridge) is a divorced but devoted father of two, and the respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm. He's gearing up to launch their next exhibition, ‘The Square’, a daring installation examining altruism and our duty to help others.
However, Christian's own views on social responsibility are put to the test when he becomes the victim of a scam, forcing him to question the world around him and his place within it. Meanwhile, a shocking viral stunt cooked up by the museum's PR agency is met with public outcry, sending Christian – and the museum – into an existential crisis.
With pitch-perfect performances, inventive set pieces and a cutting deadpan wit, The Square is a hilarious, unique and often surreal look at idealism, hypocrisy and cynicism in the modern world. It also stars Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale, Mad Men) and Dominic West (The Wire).
