The Square

Winner Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival 2017

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 passersby to 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.

Stars Dominic West, Elisabeth Moss, Claes Bang and Terry Notary.

"It affirms that art, this movie very much included, can tell us things about ourselves that we'd prefer not to know."

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"The Square is both outlandishly funny and biting-and features a fascinating and sometimes disturbing performance by Terry Notary."

Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

"Östlund is specific and exacting as a writer and director, and within The Square's empty spaces, we're forced to confront our own values, and our own visions of ourselves."

Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
