"THE SQUARE is darkly amusing, but it’s also bracingly honest in its absurdity, and that’s what kept me coming back to each one of its wonderfully knotty scenarios even months after seeing it."

- David Sims, The Atlantic

THE SQUARE

2017, Sweden/Germany/France/Denmark, Magnolia Pictures, 142 min. Dir. Ruben Östlund.

In the latest from writer-director Ruben Östlund (Golden Globe nominee FORCE MAJEURE), Claes Bang stars as Christian, the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His show “The Square” is an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. When his phone is stolen, Christian gets into shameful situations and eventually both the curator and the museum are thrown into an existential crisis. Costarring Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West, this droll satire won the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or.

In Swedish, Danish and English with English subtitles.
