“A Scathingly, Brilliantly-Funny Film.” Steve Pond, The Wrap
2017 Cannes Palm d’or Winner : Winner of 6 European Film Awards : Golden Globe & Oscar Nominee – Best Foreign Film
Screens Wednesday, Jan 17th @ 7PM
Rated R. 142 Minutes.
From Swedish writer/director, Rubin Östlund, the brilliant mind behind Force Majuere, comes 2017 Cannes Palm d’or winner The Square. Disaster strikes when a curator hires a public relations team to build some buzz for his renowned museum. When the PR agency creates an unexpected campaign for “The Square,” an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings, the response is overblown and sends the curator, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.
After sweeping the 2017 European film awards, the picture is one of nine titles in contention for 2018’s best foreign language film Oscar. Starring Elizabeth Moss, Claes Bong, Dominic West. Swedish/English. Rated R, the film runs 142 minutes. Closed Captioning available.
