[FILM NEWS] TRIANGLE OF SADNESS Release Date Announced
Sharmill Films will release the highly anticipated black comedy Triangle of Sadness, from acclaimed filmmaker Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure, The Square) on Boxing Day, 2022. The winner of the 2022 Palme D’or at the Cannes Film Festival, Triangle of Sadness has become one of the most talked about films of the year, reflecting the times with its satirical take on the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Starring Woody Harrelson, Charlbi Dean and Harris Dickinson, Triangle of Sadness followed its success at Cannes with screenings at the recent Toronto International Film Festival, and its newly released trailer gives audiences an insight into the outrageous and savagely funny tale of class clashes and role reversals.
Models Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) are navigating the world of fashion while exploring the boundaries of their relationship. The couple are invited for a luxury cruise with a rogues’ gallery of super-rich passengers, a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and an idiosyncratic, alcoholic, Marx-quoting captain (Woody Harrelson). At first, all appears Instagrammable, but a storm is brewing, and heavy seasickness hits the passengers during the seven-course captain’s dinner. The cruise ends catastrophically and Carl and Yaya find themselves marooned on a desert island with a group of billionaires and one of the ship’s cleaners. Hierarchy is suddenly flipped upside down, as the housekeeper is the only one who knows how to fish.
