Ruben Östlund’s latest Palme d’Or–winning satire explores hypocrisy, greed, and thirst for power amongst the idle rich (and the luxury-cruise industry). Models Carl and Yaya are invited for a luxury cruise with a rogues’ gallery of super-rich passengers. At first, all appears Instagrammable, but the cruise ends catastrophically and the group find themselves marooned on a desert island.

Ruben Östlund is a Swedish filmmaker and two time winner of the Cannes Palme d’Or.  In 2014, his film Force Majeure was selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival, winning the Jury Prize. Sweden then submitted Force Majeure for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. After the Academy shortlisted but did not nominate it, Östlund released a humorous video of his response to missing the nomination list. In 2017, his film The Square, loosely inspired by some of his own experiences and art installation with Kalle Boman,competed at the Cannes Film Festival, where it ultimately won the Palme d’Or.

“It’s a sweet revenge dream for those of us who have to work for a living without a lot to show for it, and Östlund brings it to vivid life with caustic wit.” ~ Gena Radcliffe, The Spool

“Yes, the metaphor can seem very on-the-nose: the super rich, in this economic climate especially, are obscene and repulsive! But it’s a film of great subtlety (really) and benefits from multiple viewings.” ~ Kevin Maher, Times (UK)
