Synopsis

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2017. A poignant satirical drama reflecting our times, about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person's need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world. People gather to City Square, where there are no rules and you can do whatever you want. This is part of the new exhibition. Christian is the successful curator of a modern art museum - he lives in the epicentre of the art community and takes his work very seriously. A few days before the opening of the prestigious exhibition ‘The Square’, he is mugged, which he can neither shake off, nor let pass unnoticed. Christian embarks on a hunt for the perpetrator and ends up in situations that turn steadily more amusing, and make him question his own moral compass. Simultaneously he has to deal with the PR agency, and the museum hired to help market the upcoming exhibition. Events take an unexpected turn and plunges both the curator and the museum into crisis. Cast includes Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West. (English and subtitles) Sweden/ Germany/ France/Denmark 2017 Ruben Östlund 142m
