DIRECTOR Ruben Östlund
CAST Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Terry Notary

A respected contemporary art museum curator’s life spirals out of control in this Palme d’Or winning darkly comic and subversive satire.
An audacious and provocative satirical drama about the modern art world from Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure). A few days before the opening of a major new exhibition, the director of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm faces a spiralling series of personal and professional troubles after a disturbing experience he cannot shrug off. Featuring pitch-perfect performances and razor-sharp wit, this is an incisive dissection of so-called civilised society and the pretensions of high art.
(2017 Sweden / Germany / France / Denmark 151 mins Subtitled)

A sardonic, darkly funny picture about a dashing museum curator (Claes Bang) whose dysfunctional institution is a microcosm of the larger world… The Square is both outlandishly funny and biting – and features a fascinating and sometimes disturbing performance by Terry Notary, the gifted actor and movement choreographer who has helped bring motion-capture characters to life in the Hobbit and Planet of the Apes movies.  Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
