The latest film to take a satirical bite out of the wealthy and privileged comes from Swedish director Ruben Östlund (“Force Majeure”, “The Square”). It’s “Triangle of Sadness”, the Palme d’Or winner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. This is Östlund’s first English-language feature film, and after navigating several COVID-19 delays, this biting dark comedy is all set the hit theaters. NEON has dropped the first trailer and it looks every bit as wild as advertised.
The movie stars Harry Dickinson as an aspiring model vacationing with his girlfriend played by Charlbi Dean. The couple win a trip aboard a luxury cruise captained by none other than Woody Harrelson. The other guests are a collection of snobbish one-percenters. But as the puke-soaked trailer reveals, things aboard the lavish yacht go terribly wrong, and Östlund has us sit back and watch as the privileged get some healthy doses of humility. I can’t wait to see what all Östlund has up his sleeve.
“Triangle of Sadness” hits theaters October 7th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
It looks hilarious though I am not sure if this is the film that deserved the Palme d’Or as I saw The Square last May and I thought it was good but not worthy of the Palme d’Or except for that one bit in the film involving a baby.
It looks like it’ll be a ton of fun. It has gotten good reviews from festival viewers but not what I’d call rave reviews. Still, I’m excited to see it.
oh yes oh yes oh yes I will being seeing this one. I saw both The Square and Force Majeure. Didn’t care for the first one but really enjoyed the second one.
I loved Force Majeure. Not an easy watch but a powerful one. This looks a bit zanier which is ok by me!
p.s. on a different movie, I didn’t see, “Margrete: Queen of the North” in your archive. A very good movie if you get a chance to see it.
Ooooh ok. I haven’t seen that one and I always love recommendations! I’ll definitely look it up.
🔴🟡 Pass 🔵🟣
Not watching people chucking up! I was traumatised by Mr.Creosote and that’s that!
Ha! From what I understand there’s about a 15 minute upchuck sequence.
I’m well out then!
Uhhh. This is a rhetorical question, but why on earth does the freeze frame image for the trailer have to be . . . . that? lol that’s an awful picture I cant get out of my head.
