THE SQUARE - Monday 30th April 2018
Directed by Ruben Östlund
Sweden - Subtitled
Christian (Claes Bang) 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.
Winner of the Palme D’Or at Cannes Film Festival, it is the most talked about film of the season. The Square is a laugh out loud comedy for the modern age.
“The script is witty, the performances flawless, the ideas - mostly - profound..” – David Stratton – The Australian
“At its best, it skims sublimely from scene to scene, arousing constant knowing humour, satirical appreciation and - Östlund's speciality - ambiguous dread, before arriving at the scene of the year.”- CJ Johnson, ABC Radio
“There has never been a Palme d’Or winner quite like this one”. - USA Today
