The Square

Dir. Ruben Östlund. Sweden, 2017. 2h 31m. Swedish/Danish/subs. Starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Terry Notary, Christopher Læssø, Marina Schiptjenko.

A provocative and entertaining satire on the art world from the director of Force Majeure. The respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm faces public outrage after a controversial publicity stunt backfires. Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2017.

‘Östlund is a clever, dazzling misanthrope.’ ★★★★★ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

‘Ostlund uses his setting to explore hidden inequalities in supposedly liberal societies, particularly those concerning masculinity, race and class, playing with our expectations about what is supposed to happen versus the uncomfortable results.’ Violet Lucca, Sight and Sound
