The Square

The winner of this year's Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival finally arrives on our screens marking a return from Ruben Östlund, the brilliant director of Force Majeure.

Casting a satirical eye onto the art world, as the Stockholm Palace has been converted into an art museum following the abolition of the Monarchy of Sweden. Christian is a curator at the museum, who finds his progressive world view shaken when his mobile phone is stolen. While managing a space set to show a new installation piece, he finds a public relations company to promote the installation, creating a great deal of chaos.

Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid's Tale), Claes Bang and Dominic West (The Wire), The Square is a potent film that explores the boundaries of political correctness, artistic liberty and free speech in provocative ways.

The Square doesn't open in the UK until March 2018, but you can catch a very special advance screening on Sunday 15 October at 15:10.
