Event description

Description

It's happening People! Book tickets now for the hottest film event of 2018...so far...(cuz we have more up our sleeves.) This event is for 18+ as the film is restricted.

At this friendly, fun community arts event, you'll be mixing with Sudbury's top cinephiles, arts-lovers along with special VIP guests. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and be the first Northern Ontario audience to revel in Cannes top winner of 2017 THE SQUARE, then ham it up at our European electro dance party.

More about Cannes 2017 Palme d'Or Winner & Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Film, THE SQUARE:

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.

Critic reviews

A Brilliant Takedown of the Art World.
Vice

The Square probably says more about the times we’re living in than any other film you’re likely to see this year.
Village Voice

Taken individually, the scenes that “The Square” comprises are often marvelous to behold.
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post


Ostlund’s eye for the subtleties of human behavior, especially public behavior, never fails.
Emily Yoshida, Vulture


The director Ruben Ostlund aims for fat satirical targets here, and he sprays buckshot at the audience as well as in his own face. But his film won the top prize at Cannes.
A.O. Scott, The NYTimes

The Square is darkly amusing, but it’s also bracingly honest in its absurdity, and that’s what kept me coming back to each one of its wonderfully knotty scenarios even months after seeing it.
David Sims, The Atlantic


The film is full of delicious riffs, salacious outbursts (a polite museum audience is ever so respectful toward a man with Tourette syndrome), unexplained intruders.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
