On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
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.
