Force Majeure director Ruben Östlund returns with The Square, a knife-sharp satire on art, culture and communication in the digital age. Winner of the Palme d’Or at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, it stars Claes Bang (The Bridge), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men) and Dominic West (The Wire).
Christian (Bang) 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.
