The Square

Director: Ruben Ostlund
Starring: Claes Bang, Dominic West, Elisabeth Moss
Duration: 151 min


Following his critically acclaimed fourth feature Force Majeure (2014), Ruben Östlund’s The Square, walked away with the coveted Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. This self-penned, art world satire stars Elisabeth Moss, Claes Bang and Dominic West. A poignant drama full of inventive set pieces and deadpan wit, The Square reflects the uncertain times we live in.

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 show, ‘The Square’, a daring installation examining altruism and our duty to help others. The theft of his mobile phone is the catalyst for Christian’s progressive world view to run head-on into unsettling experience.

Plus exclusive interview with Director Ruben Östlund.
