Academy Award Nominee — Best Foreign Language Film

After the family satire Force Majeure, Ruben Östlund’s Cannes-winning latest aims at the art world. A respected museum curator, Christian (Claes Bang) drives a hybrid and supports good causes. His next show is The Square, an installation encouraging passersby to be responsible and altruistic. But living those ideals isn’t always so easy, and when Christian’s phone is stolen, he finds himself drawn into compromised situations. And once an edgy marketing campaign for The Square unexpectedly goes viral, he falls into an existential crisis.
