Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.03.15] scifi comedy cult drama dystopic arthouse



Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, whose stunning and controversial Dogtooth (review) was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar, The Lobster stars Colin Farrell as a divorcee in a dystopian world who must find love within 45 days! If he doesn't he'll become a Lobster and released into the woods.


The Lobster premiered at Cannes 2015, where it won the jury prize.






Official Synopsis:
THE LOBSTER is a love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel.

There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods.

A desperate man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live and falls in love, although it is against their rules.
