Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, this satirical drama from Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure) stars Claes Bang as Christian, a prestigious curator for a contemporary art museum. While preparing an installation that invites passersby to engage in altruism (thus reminding them of their role as responsible human beings), Christian discovers that his wallet and phone were stolen on the street and proceeds to neglect practicing what he preaches. Co-starring Elisabeth Moss as an American journalist who tries to penetrate Claes’ artistic pretension, The Square is a bracing and edgy comedy-drama that tackles a host of issues and conditions of our modern age. In Swedish with English subtitles. With Dominic West, Terry Notary. Writer/Director: Ruben Östlund. (Sweden 2017) 145 min.
