Triangle of Sadness
"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
Winner of the Cannes Palme d’Or, Swedish director Ruben Östlund’s newest continues his MO to wrap up barbed social commentary into the folds of a really great story, on this occasion via the crew and guests of a luxury cruise. Triangle of Sadness skewers the worlds of fashion, social media, and wealth in a way that’s truly just so damn funny and at times, completely provocative.
The film follows models Carl and Yaya, who are navigating the world of fashion while exploring the boundaries of their relationship. The couple are invited for a luxury cruise with a rogues' gallery of super-rich passengers, a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and an idiosyncratic, alcoholic, Marx-quoting captain. At first, all appears Instagrammable. But a storm is brewing.
