Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman, Ashley Jensen, John C Reilly, Lea Seydoux, Michael Smiley and Ben Whishaw, THE LOBSTER is a darkly funny love story set in a near future where finding love is a matter of life or death…

According to the rules of The City, single people are arrested and then 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 (Farrell), escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live and falls in love, although it is against their rules.

This was a weird but great film. Wooden acting from everyone all around, but I get the sense that this was intentional and just part of a society that would turn it’s single people into animals if they don’t pick a mate. They never get into the science fiction side of the story, this is more of a character piece that’s making commentary on dating and marriage and what people will do to find someone to be in their lives.
