Synopsis:

Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund’s The Square, a startling satire of the art world, was the most talked about film at Cannes this year and went on to win the main prize of the jury led by Pedro Almodóvar. On the verge of opening a major new exhibition called The Square, museum curator Christian (Claes Bang) faces a series of troubles, including a backfiring PR campaign, an awkward fling with a journalist (Elisabeth Moss), and a performance centrepiece gone horribly wrong. When Christian is mugged for his phone he goes over the edge and takes his museum with him.

‘This is high-wire cinema, it sets out to make your jaw drop and it succeeds' (The Guardian)

‘A dark delight' (The Playlist)
