Cruise with detour

A celebrity model couple, Yaya and Carl, are invited to join a luxury cruise for the ultrarich. In exchange for its social media promotion by Yaya.
The couple has been arguing since the beginning about gender roles and their part of the relationship. The model industry is women dominated, and male models get paid a lot less, which affects their relationship and prevents a deeper connection. All the guests luxuriate on the yacht, oblivious to the crew working to meet their every need and whim. Even the weirdest and most unnecessary wishes are fulfilled.

This is the perfect environment to deepen a relationship and let loose of all other worries in the world, right?

The title doesn’t effectively sell how chaotically funny and eviscerating Ruben Ostlund’s social satire is. (Wenlei Ma)
