Monday Cinema: Triangle of Sadness

January 30 4:00 to 6:30 pm

In Ruben Östlund’s wickedly funny Palme d’Or winner, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty.

The director of festival favourites “The Square” and “Force Majeure” is a master of satire and in the absurd, iconoclastic riot “Triangle of Sadness” his mix of farcical comedy and searing indictment is more extreme than ever.

Celebrity model couple, Carl and Yaya, are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich because of their Insta-influencer status, rubbing shoulders with arms dealers and Russian oligarchs. The “carnival of excess” is made even more ridiculous as their boat captain, played hilariously by Woody Harrelson, is an unhinged alcoholic Marxist. And when disaster strikes dynamics shift and the crew finally get the upper hand.

Please note, this film has a scene of vomiting for an extended period of time.
