The Square, a new film by Jehane Noujaim (Control Room; Rafea: Solar Mama), looks at the hard realities faced day-to-day by people working to build Egypt’s new democracy. Catapulting us into the action spread across 2011 and 2012, the film provides a kaleidoscopic, visceral experience of the struggle. Cairo’s Tahrir Square is the heart and soul of the film, which follows several young activists. Armed with values, determination, music, humor, an abundance of social media, and sheer obstinacy, they know that the thorny path to democracy only began with Hosni Mubarek’s fall. The life-and-death struggle between the people and the power of the state is still playing out.The Square featuring Khalid Abdalla and Dina Abdullah is streaming with subscription on Netflix, streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Fandor, and 2 others. It's a documentary and drama movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 100% and a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (8,250 votes).
