The social hierarchy is flipped when a luxury yacht gets into trouble and its passengers have to depend on the housekeeper for survival.
Celebrity model couple, Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean), are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain (Woody Harrelson). What first appeared Instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.
Ruben Östlund has previously served up delicious fare in ‘Force Majeure’ and ‘The Square’. This is pointed, barbed humour laser-focused on the beautiful and the avaricious, who can’t seem to imagine the life of people who have to work for a living. Winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
