The Lobster starring Colin Farrell

On October 3, 2015

Take a look at this eclectic film starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz.

Winner of this year's Cannes Jury Prize, the new film and English-language debut from the wonderfully idiosyncratic mind of Yorgos Lanthimos (Alps, Dogtooth) is a deadpan absurdist satire of modern romance that could only have come from the Greek auteur.

In the near future, single citizens are sent to a hotel where they have 45 days to pair off with a mate – or be turned into the animal of their choosing and hunted in the woods. The Lobster is fiercely, unmistakably Lanthimos: by turns surreal, grimly funny and strangely moving. It's the work of one of contemporary cinema's true originals.
