Golden Globe nominee: Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language


Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or winner THE SQUARE, from Director Ruben Östlund (FORCE MAJEURE), centers around contemporary art museum curator Christian, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next art show, “The Square”, invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, Christian discovers, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals, as 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 of which sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.
