Winner Palme D’Or (best picture), Cannes Film Festival, 2017

Swedish writer-director Ruben Ostlund (the director of Force Majeure) takes modern society’s temperature and finds it dangerously overheated in the madly ambitious and frequently disquieting THE SQUARE…a dark comedy study of individual and societal morality.

“…it sets out to make your jaw drop.   And it succeeds.”
– Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“Through its somewhat loosely connected, often hilarious vignettes, THE SQUARE questions our understanding of honesty, trust, and fellowship….the film’s scenes suggest that our notions of integrity and community might be a lot more fragile than we think.”
– Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

“A potent, disturbing work that explores the boundaries of political correctness, artistic liberty and free speech in provocative ways.”
– Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

Language: Swedish, Danish, English (English subtitles)

Rated R for language, some strong sexual content, and brief violence
