Synopsis


The Lobster
After his wife leaves him, David (Colin Farrell) is sent to a hotel for single adults and urged to find a new significant other within 45 days -- if he fails, he will be transformed into an animal of his choosing. David eventually meets a runaway from the hotel (Rachel Weisz), and the two begin a secret romance. Léa Seydoux, Jessica Barden, Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and John C. Reilly co-star. This absurdist dystopian comedy is the first English-language feature from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, and was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    A Very Unique Love Story

    The Lobster is one of those movies that will garner polar opposite feelings from its audience. Many will love it and agree with its Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay or they will absolutely hate this film. I strongly recommend watching this movie because no matter if you love it or hate it, the film will stay with you for a long time.

    A story that is both thought-provoking and rapturously romantic! A dark-comedy that sets the bar very high and demands your attention!

    Yorgos Lanthimos is the modern day Luis Buñuel. Yeah, his films are that good.

    The lobster is great. Nothing like I expected. Don't watch the trailer buy this movie and be surprised by its unique take on things.

    Still haven't watched it but got it for a great price. Strange movie or not, I figured $17 is worth the watch.

    If you can get pass the wooden delivery of dialog and accept this as a parallel universe very much like our own but with ever so slight differences (such as manner of speaking), then this will be at times a hilarious ride. Imagine if being single is a crime and your human existence would be terminated in this society unless you pair up with someone else - the only grace upon your death being reincarnation as an animal of your choosing. The survival instinct is to obey the societal rules.. Or would you choose to rebel and become a loner who is hunted by law abiding citizens?
