TRIANGLE OF SADNESS

In Ruben Östlund’s wickedly funny Palme d’Or winner, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple, Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean), are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain (Woody Harrelson).

“Ruben Östlund’s takedown of the super-rich…plays like Buñuel by way of the Farrelly brothers.” —Philip de Semlyen, Time Out

“If an argument between an American socialist and a Russian capitalist is any indication, subtlety is not the primary aim in this film’s portrayal of class — and it’s a nasty hoot because of it.” —Iana Murphy, Evening Standard

“The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think. There’s a meticulous precision to the way he constructs, blocks and executes scenes — a kind of agonizing unease, amplified by awkward silences or an unwelcome fly buzzing between characters struggling to communicate.” —Peter Debruge, Variety
