Winner of this year’s Cannes Jury Prize, the English-language debut from idiosyncratic Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos sees the filmmaker take aim at our obsession with coupling up. In a not-too-distant dystopic future, single people are sent to a hotel where they are given 45 days to find a mate among their ranks. If they fail in this partner-finding mission, they are mysteriously transformed into the animal of their choice. With a cast including Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Lea Seydoux, John C. Reilly, Olivia Colman and Ben Whishaw, The Lobster is a fiercely original film that will have you questioning your own romantic relationships.
