Gala Premières and special events

"A thrillingly weird study of an art gallery director whose life goes into meltdown after his mobile phone is stolen. Östlund's daringly surreal satire turns a contemporary art museum into a city-state of bizarre, dysfunctional and Ballardian strangeness. 'The Square' sets out to make your jaw drop. And it succeeds." (The Guardian)
