The Lobster + surprises

Trailer Review


November 11 & 14

Colin Farrel and Rachel Weisz star in this slightly surreal comedy about guests at a hotel that facilitates finding a romantic partner. Staying at the hotel comes with a contract and rules, the biggest being that if you don’t bag a lover in 45 days, you turn into an animal. Sweeping landscapes mixed with Lanthimos’ Grand Guignol bloodiness explore the different aspects of love, dependence, desperation, and human nature. (dir. Yorgos Lanthimos, Greece, 2015, 118 min)

An uproarious yet deadpan satire concerning societal constructs, dating mores and power structures manages to be a surprisingly moving, gloriously weird love story.” – Playlist
