Description

Swedish director Ruben Östlund continues to surprise: This year, he became the unexpected recipient of the Palme d'Or for his ambitious follow-up to his acclaimed international hit, Force Majeure (MVFF 2014). Continuing with some of the moral and societal themes of its predecessor, The Square follows Christian (Claes Bang, in a stellar, breakthrough performance), a handsome, fortysomething curator at a respected Stockholm art museum, whose life and current exhibit—also titled "The Square"—spiral out of control after his phone and wallet are stolen when he tries to break up a domestic dispute on the street on his way to work. Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale), Dominic West (The Wire), and Terry Notary (War for the Planet of the Apes) co-star in this hilarious and provocative satire of the art world, one of the rare comedies to capture the top honor at Cannes.
