Square, The (15)

Documentary, Comedy, Drama

A group of Egyptian revolutionaries battle leaders and regimes, risking their lives to build a new society of conscience.

The critical consensus

Only undermined by a sometimes sketchy coverage of details of the Arab Spring, this is a clear-eyed look at some of the men and women behind the news.

***(*)(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 10/01/2014

It's not an enjoyable film, but it is rousing, detailed, humane and naturally dramatic.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 09/01/2014

Jehane Noujaim’s film is inspirational and dispiriting by turns.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 09/01/2014

It's a gripping story and the fact that it isn't over only makes it more extraordinary.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 09/01/2014

It's an astonishingly intimate account of an ongoing revolution, seen from within the heart of historic social upheaval; alarming, uplifting, empowering.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 12/01/2014
