The Lobster
director:
Yorgos Lanthimos
cast:
Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly

In a dystopian near future, single people are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into an animal of their choosing and sent off into The Woods. At once a full immersion into a strange and surreal world, and a witty and clever reflection of our own society, The Lobster is a thrillingly audacious vision by Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth). “A wickedly funny protest against societal preference for nuclear coupledom that escalates, by its own sly logic, into a love story of profound tenderness and originality.” (Guy Lodge, Variety)
