STARRING: Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Terry Notary

2017 Cannes Film Festival - Winner: Palme d'Or

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 "The 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: Christian's foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for "The Square". The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.

“A potent, disturbing work that explores the boundaries of political correctness, artistic liberty and free speech in provocative ways.” --The Hollywood Reporter

“A merciless and mercilessly funny [comedy], laser-point precise in its humor.” --The AV Club
