A Biting, Hilarious Art World Satire

A film by Ruben Östlund

It has been 23 years since a comedy won the highest film award of Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or – and it took The Square, a jaw-dropping, whip-smart art-world satire to do it.

Needing a provocative idea to draw attention to his palatial Stockholm museum, head curator Christian spends millions on “The Square,” a barely-visible installation that invites visitors to exercise altruism. When the museum’s über-cool ad agency comes up with an “edgy” campaign for the accompanying exhibit, Christian is too obsessed with the loss of his cell phone to pay much attention. The downward spiral that transpires is a neat summation of our current anxieties, and a gnawing dread that civilization’s advances since our evolution from the apes may all be for naught.

“Through its … hilarious vignettes, The Square questions our understanding of honesty, trust, and fellowship.” – Village Voice / Full review

“Most of the film's best scenes could function as their own short film; string enough of them together and they all shed different light on a central theme.” –New York Magazine / Full review

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