At Cannes, STX is introducing the picture about a newly married executive who has a stake in a pharmaceutical company that’s about to go public when his life is thrown into turmoil by an incident in Mexico.

Nash Edgerton made his feature directorial debut with the Australian thriller “The Square,” written by Joel Edgerton and Matthew Dabner, and starring David Roberts and Claire van der Boom.
