Swedish filmmaker Ruben Ostlund, winner of the 2017 Cannes Palme d'Or for The Square, has cast Woody Harrelson and newcomers Charlbi Dean and Harris Dickinson in his satire Triangle of Sadness.
Triangle of Sadness is is Ostlund's ?rst English language film, and his sixth feature after The Guitar Mongoloid, Involuntary, Force Majeure and The Square, another satire, this time on the art world and featuring Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West.
The film will follow fashion model couple Carl (Dickinson) and Yaya (Dean) who are invited on a luxury cruise. When the yacht sinks they become stranded on a desert island with a group of billionaires and a cleaning lady (De Leon). In the fight for survival, old hierarchies are turned upside down since the cleaning lady is the only one who knows how to fish. Think Lord Of The Flies meets the fashion world.
Ostlund tells us that Harrelson will play an eccentric Marxist sea captain who spouts the communist manifesto at his passengers during a storm which has his precious cargo reaching for the sick buckets.
