Winner of the Palme d’Or, the coveted Grand Prize, at Cannes this year! THE SQUARE is set in a renowned museum where an artist exhibits an installation meant to promote altruism, providing people with a symbolic space where only good things can happen. The movie’s protagonist is the manager of the museum who hires a ruthless PR firm to build some buzz around the installation, but things get out of hand when the museum’s PR team goes too far with their publicity plans, sparking a public uproar and exposing the hypocrisy of the media. “**** This is highwire cinema. It sets out to make your jaw drop and it succeeds.” —Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian. “There’s never been a Palme D’Or winner quite like THE SQUARE. It’s darkly funny, disarmingly moving and brilliantly mines uncomfortable situations for laughs.” —Patrick Ryan, USA Today. In English, and in Swedish and Danish with English subtitles. Unrated. 150 Min.
