The Square, the latest film from Swedish director Ruben Ístlund (Force Majeure) which took home the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, has finally got a trailer so we can see what all the fuss is about!

Starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West and Terry Notary, The Square looks like a peculiar and intriguing comedy with moments of awkwardness and absurdity. The story follows a curator of a modern and contemporary art museum who life turns into chaos following the launch of the museum’s latest installation "The Square".

Take a look at the trailer above and have a read of the synopsis below:

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.

The Square is out in cinemas on 27 October.
