RETURN
'Force Majeure' director Ruben Östlund returns with the Oscar-nominated knife-sharp satire on art, culture and communication in the digital age. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, 'The Square' stars Claes Bang ('The Bridge'), Elisabeth Moss ('The Handmaid's Tale', 'Mad Men') and Dominic West ('The Wire'). 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. However, Christian's own views on social responsibility are put to the test when he becomes the victim of a scam, forcing him to question the world around him and his place in it. Meanwhile, a shocking viral stunt cooked up by the museum's PR agency is met with public outcry, sending Christian – and the museum – into an existential crisis. With pitch-perfect performances, inventive set pieces and a cutting deadpan wit, 'The Square' is a hilarious, unique and often surreal look at idealism and cynicism in the modern world. ★★★★ "A sly and gleaming bourgeois art-world satire" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph ★★★★ "Daringly surreal" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Outlandish, hilarious and surreal yet somehow remains brutally credible" - Emma Simmonds, Radio Times ★★★★★ "Like an enhanced interrogation by an angry, provoking, sometimes brilliant philosopher" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "An astoundingly smart film" - Kevin Maher, The Times
