HIFF alum Ruben Östlund (FORCE MAJEURE, THE SQUARE) strikes again with this shocking comedic satire of modern extravagance in the era of Insta-fame. A young model Carl (Harris Dickinson) and his girlfriend Yaya (Charlbi Dean) are invited to join the wealthy elite aboard a luxury cruise helmed by a slightly crazed captain (Woody Harrelson). What promises to be a lavish voyage soon derails into a disaster of epic proportion. Artfully told, this wild romp won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and delivers a riotous (and at times hard to stomach) commentary on the superficial glitz and glamor of high society. A Neon release.
