The Square

1h 45m Drama, Crime, Thriller 2008

Temptation turns a man’s life upside down in this noir-influenced thriller from Australia. Ray Yale is a construction worker who is married to Martha 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, a hairdresser who lives next door. Carla is married to a low-level mobster, Greg, 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, 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 realises he’s been implicated in a murder, and Billy doesn’t hesitate to use this knowledge to his advantage.
