THE SQUARE
Starring Elisabeth Moss

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes

Following his acclaimed Force Majeure, Ruben Östlund conjures a wild and thought-provoking tale of a museum curator whose show about altruism unleashes a storm of questionable behavior.

In Ruben Östlund’s 2017 Palme d’Or–winner—the rare movie to have as many laughs as ideas—Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is “The Square”, an installation which invites people to practice altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian’s foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for ”The Square”. The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis. (Sweden/Germany/France/Denmark, 2017, 142 min., NR, English| Dir. Ruben Östland)
