The Square (DVD)
This Swedish black comedy won the Prix d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017. Starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West.
Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is ¹The Square, an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christians foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations.
Meanwhile, the museums PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for ¹The Square. The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.
