“Gobsmackingly weird and outrageous sets out to make your jaw drop. And it succeeds....This is high wire cinema!”—Guardian (UK)


Mark your calendars for what’s sure to be one of the year’s biggest cinematic conversation starters! Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Ruben Östlund’s follow-up to his acclaimed hit Force Majeure is a daring, sharply savage satire of the contemporary art world. A museum director’s seemingly progressive worldview is rattled by an encounter with pickpockets. Then his troubles—and the film’s absurdities—only escalate when an aggressive firm is brought in to promote his gallery’s upcoming installation, The Square, designed to highlight our collective social responsibility. With Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid's Tale) and Dominic West (The Wire). (142 mins., DCP)
