The Square; Ruben Östlund, 2017, versions: OR,CS,ES,

Director: Ruben Östlund • Scenario: Ruben Östlund • Camera: Fredrik Wenzel • Haircut: Jacob Secher Schulsinger • Cast: Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Christopher Læssø, John Nordling

The Square is 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. Christian is the successful curator of a modern art museum - he lives in the epicenter 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 or 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 the museum hired to help market the upcoming exhibition. Something which takes an unexpected turn and plunges both the curator and the museum into crisis.
