About the Movie
Academy Award® Nominee for best foreign language film. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "The Square" is ultimately a long version of Christian's rambling apology, ostentatiously smart, maybe too much so for its own good, but ultimately complacent, craven and clueless.
Fresh: It tries so hard to tweak the audience, it virtually breaks a sweat.
Fresh: Swedish director Ruben Ostlund's art-world satire is frustratingly hit-and-miss. But when it hits, this slapstick tragedy will knock the wind out of you.
Fresh: It affirms that art, this movie very much included, can tell us things about ourselves that we'd prefer not to know.
Saw it at the movie theater.
Can’t wait to have it in my collection.
Dear lord, what a waste
Title says it all.
I can't get into this because of her, she's as bad in this as she is in Mad Men.
