Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes.

Written and directed by the mercilessly talented Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure) The Square is compulsively watchable, taking home the Palme d'Or at Cannes for its no-holds-barred satire of the postmodern art world.

On the verge of opening a prestigious exhibition, imperious and self-centred curator Christian (an excellent Claes Bang) is beset by a host of troubles — including a less-than- successful online marketing campaign, a performance piece gone horribly awry, and a mugging which leaves him both shaken and determined to hunt down the perpetrator — which sets both him and his museum on a crash course with crisis.

Like much of contemporary art that wants to make you uncomfortable, The Square succeeds admirably as a squirm inducing, whip-smart art-world satire, that forces us to confront our own values and ask what we owe one another.

Featuring scene stealers, Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West, who help make The Square one of the year's most talked about films.

"This movie really brings some gobsmackingly weird and outrageous spectacle, with moments of pure showstopping freakiness…it sets out to make your jaw drop. And it succeeds." – The Guardian
