In Ruben Östlund’s wickedly funny satire, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple Carl and Yaya are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain. What first appeared instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.
“The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think… No matter what sphere he tackles, we’re bound to see the world differently.”
—Peter Debruge for Variety
