In addition, the bonus materials include director Edgerton’s award-winning short film Spider, dubbed “a sharp, sick tour de force” by The New York Time’s A.O.

Escaping the monotony of a loveless marriage, Raymond Yale (David Roberts) becomes entangled in an affair with the beautiful and troubled Carla. Ray’s moral limits are tested when Carla presents him with the proceeds of her controlling husband’s latest crime. This is their chance: Take the money and run...if only it were that simple. The seed is planted and Ray, fearing he will lose his love, engineers the plan. Hiring the professional arsonist Billy becomes a fatal error, and the plan goes horribly wrong. Alarm bells sound and suspicions are raised but, miraculously, the dust looks to settle. After all...nobody knows. Then the first blackmail note arrives.
Directed by Nash Edgerton, The Square was written by Joel Edgerton and Matthew Dabner. Matthew Dabner, Joel Edgerton, and Nash Edgerton served as executive producers, with Louise Smith as producer.
