Triangle of Sadness

Triangle of Sadness

2:15pm - Saturday, Jan 28, 2023

In acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund's (FORCE MAJEURE, THE SQUARE) wickedly funny Palme d'Or winner TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, 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). What first appeared instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival. With Holly De Leon, Vicki Berlin.

"An absurd, iconoclastic riot. Ruben Östlund’s point may be blunt — yep, rich people are bad — but his telling of it is hilariously, breathlessly entertaining." (Empire Magazine)

"Ruben Östlund’s latest brainy satire is a continually self-renewing yet uncompromisingly coherent opus." (AV Club)

"After that final breathless shot, rather than walking out chuckling, you may walk away with your own triangle of sadness engaged, brow furrowed, mouth agape, mind whirring. And isn't that kind of rush worth the price of admission?" (Mashable)

"Don't go in expecting art-house intellectualism. The movie is as loaded with fun as it is with social implications." (Wall Street Journal)
