Involuntary review

The power of peer pressure...

The burden of peer pressure is coolly observed in this dryly amusing drama from Swedish writer/director Ruben Östlund.

Set around suburban Gothenburg, it hops between five separate strands in which individuals within various groups face moral dilemmas.

A teacher witnesses a colleague disciplining a pupil; a coach driver insists a passenger own up to an act of physical damage; while horseplay gets out of hand at an all-male reunion.

The largely unknown cast convince, even if Östlund’s detached visual style – with its off-kilter character-framing – sometimes frustrates.
