Ruben Östlund

Swedish satirist Ruben Ostlund joined a very exclusive club of two-time Cannes Palme d'Or winners with this scathingly hilarious saga of class, power and seasickness. The grotesquely rich passengers on a luxury cruise ship spend their days snapping at their young, eager crew – who are white, bright and beautiful – while an unseen host of brown-skinned workers toil invisibly in the galley and engine room. Meanwhile, the depressed captain (Woody Harrelson) drinks himself into oblivion in his cabin. The tables turn suddenly, however, when pirates invade the ship. The passengers who make it to a desert island are suddenly entirely reliant on the survival skills of a worker from below decks, who isn't inclined to indulge them. The oppressed is all too ready to take a turn as the oppressor. Wild, outsize, brash and clever, Ostlund's Odyssey lets nobody off the hook.
