  • Triangle of Sadness


Models Carl and Yaya are invited on a luxury cruise in the company of the ultra-rich – a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and the eccentric, Marx-quoting alcoholic captain. At first, everything seems perfectly Instagrammable, but a storm is brewing and the luxurious dinner with the captain is spoiled by all-around seasickness. Part of the passengers and crew end up stranded on a deserted island. Discovering that only one of them can catch fish, the hierarchy among the marooned is suddenly turned upside down. Triangle of Sadness is a riotous satire about class roles and the bad taste of extreme wealth, which earned director Ruben Östlund his second Palme d’Or at Cannes.
