The Square Details


Temptation turns a man's life upside down in this noir-influenced thriller from Australia. Ray Yale ([[Performer~P60600~David Roberts~davidroberts]]) is a construction worker who is married to Martha ([[Performer~P593573~Lucy Bell~lucybell]]) and is helping to build an upscale resort hotel just outside Sydney. Ray isn't entirely happy in his marriage, and his roving eye has become focused on Carla ([[Performer~P593603~Claire van der Boom~clairevanderboom]]), a hairdresser who lives next door. Carla is married to a low-level mobster, Greg ([[Performer~P447193~Anthony Hayes~anthonyhayes]]), but she craves excitement and is soon having a torrid affair with Ray. Carla knows that Greg has a large bundle of cash hidden in their home, and she hatches a scheme she shares with Ray -- they steal they money, set fire to the house, and run off together, with Greg imagining the cash was lost in the blaze. While Ray isn't interested in a life of crime, he can't say no to Carla, but when he develops cold feet at the last minute, his attempts to reach Billy ([[Performer~P264023~Joel Edgerton~joeledgerton]]), who was hired to torch the house, are unsuccessful, and things take a turn for the worse when he learns that Greg's aged mother was in the house when it burned to the ground. Ray quickly realizes he's been implicated in a murder, and Billy doesn't hesitate to use this knowledge to his advantage. The Square was the first directorial project for [[Performer~P375882~Nash Edgerton~nashedgerton]], who previously was one of the leading stuntmen in the Aussie film industry. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
