Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.
In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.
Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is "The Square", an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian's foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for "The Square". The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.
I am not disappointed in this movie, no. I am shocked and disappointed at the IMDb community. A comedy with a 7-8 rating? That seems like a movie worth watching, no questions asked.
But this movie... I can't remember the last time I saw something as boring and cringeworthy as this sh*t. Probably not since The Lobster (2015). The simplest way to describe it is the following. A movie about snob culture that is in itself, snobby. It makes fun of how things like modern art and corporate projects have gotten meaningless and superficial, but in my opinion does a poor job at it. It's supposed to be a comedy, yet I didn't laugh at all until the sex scene, which was so abrupt and absurd I burst out laughing - while the whole theater watched in uncomfortable silence. I could've given it a second star because of that, except I would have stopped watching it long before had I not been at the movie theater. Also, I just want to lower the rating as much as possible :)))
The scenes were so so, sooo long. Totally unecessary in my opinion. If I'd cut them in half I wouldn't have missed anything. They had me squirming in my seat and seriously considering to leave the theater. I mean seriously, a "comedy" 2 and a half hours long? Give me a break..I should have known it wasn't any good.
So if you get what I'm saying about snobby movies, don't watch this. As for anyone who liked this movie, guess what, you're a snob too.
