Director Ruben Östlund's (FORCE MAJEURE) new film, THE SQUARE, won the 2017 Palme d'Or, the best picture award at the Cannes Film Festival. The film follows Christian, a respected curator of a contemporary art museum, whose new show is called "The Square". This installation invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings.
Christian’s 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.
Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West
