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
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's funny throughout - not to say that it inspires many laughs, but it's full of irony and absurdity and is very smart.
Rotten: For all its stylishness and sophistication, "The Square" never adds up to more than its very attractive parts.
Fresh: An examination of social context, elitism, cultural bubbles and more, The Square is - to put it precisely - absolutely bonkers. But purposefully bonkers.
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.
