Lobster, The


A love story set in the near future where single adults are arrested and transferred to a hotel where they are obliged to find a match within 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into the woods. A desperate man escapes, only to then fall in love.

Directing his first film entirely in the English language, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos’ THE LOBSTER – a black comedy set in a world where, if you’re not paired up with a life-mate by a certain age, you risk being transformed into an animal of your choosing – is distinguished by the odd, staccato line delivery by its performers that sets it apart from practically every other recent comedy. Full of sly observations and reflections on the societal pressures of coupling up, getting married and starting a family, it stars an unexpectedly funny Colin Farrell opposite an brilliant cast including Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly and Ben Whishaw.
