Two-time Palme d’Or winner Ruben Östlund (The Square) cements his position as contemporary cinema’s leading satirist with this savagely funny tale of class clashes and role reversals.

This outrageous comedy finds a rogues’ gallery of wealthy guests (from business tycoons to heiresses) aboard a hyper-luxury yacht, whose downtrodden staff – under the command of their captain and avowed Marxist (Woody Harrelson) – must respond to their every belittling whim in the hope of winning tips. Among the super-rich patrons are the oh-so-beautiful couple Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean), two models and social media influencers who have been invited on a free trip to show off the kind of lavish lifestyle many could only dream of.

When the vessel is shipwrecked after a storm, the remaining passengers and crew are left stranded on an island. Here, survival skills become the new currency and hierarchical structures are upended, with the ship’s toilet cleaner Abigail (Dolly De Leon) taking charge over the moneyed elites, who are at a loss without their creature comforts. Fate introduces a little equality among the survivors, with anarchic, shocking and hilarious results.

Triangle of Sadness is further evidence of Östlund’s brilliant skewering of modern Western society, its values and everything that those who profit from it hold dear.

Why We Love It:

'Östlund is the master of the uncomfortable awkward moment. His characters’ actions are frequently understandable, and yet often you still want the ground to open and swallow them up. The middle section will become the film’s most notorious – it contains Östlund’s boldest, funniest work to date. How great the temptation (and possible pressure) to tone it all down a little must have been. How impressive the director's ballsiness not to succumb.'

David Gattens, Glasgow Film Finance/Commercial Director
