Top prize winner, Cannes 2022!
Social satirist Ruben Östlund (The Square; Force Majeure) picked up his second Palme d’Or at Cannes with this gleefully mischievous assault on the State of Things. Influencer couple Carl and Yaya (Harris Dickinson and Charlbi Dean) join a luxury cruise for the super rich. While the crew bends over backwards to accommodate the passengers’ whims, the captain (Woody Harrelson) refuses to leave his cabin before the mandatory dinner given in his name—a tumultuous banquet which coincides with a dire turn in the weather. Östlund retains his knack for hitting on potent and provocative situations. Granted, most of the characters are truly awful. Yet the movie keeps building and damn if we don’t care about them by the end. It’s a must-see.—Vancouver International Film Festival
“Brace yourself for a scathing comedy that takes aim at the wealthy and the beautiful — and tosses all decorum overboard without a life vest.”—AARP
“Don’t go in expecting art-house intellectualism. The movie is as loaded with fun as it is with social implications.”—Wall Street Journal
