A young couple sit on deckchairs on a boat, looking off-camera, happy and confused
Triangle of Sadness, dir. Ruben Östlund, Sweden / Germany / France / Denmark 2022, 142 min., English, 15

Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure, The Square) cements his position as contemporary cinema’s leading satirist with this savagely funny tale of class clashes and role reversals – the director’s first English-language feature and the winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes.

Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean, her last role before her death) are a couple of models–actors–whatevers whose relationship seems to be heading south – until Yaya is invited on a luxury cruise in the hope that she’ll show it off on her wildly popular social media accounts. The pair join a rogue’s gallery of tycoons, oligarchs and heiresses on board the liner, captained by an unstable Marxist (Woody Harrelson) – until the boat goes down in a storm, leaving the witless passengers alone on an island to fend for themselves. A gloriously vicious script and some scene-stealing performances ensure Östlund’s satire always hits its targets – squarely between the eyes.
