The Lobster – Official Trailer -A24

One of the film festivals favourite last year is a twisted sci-fi comedy film titled The Lobster. This endearing oddball comedy is written and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starred Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz,John C Reilly and Ben Wishaw. Here is the official synopsis: In this highly imaginative, delightfully absurdist comedy from visionary director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth), Colin Farrell stars as David, a man who has just been dumped by his wife. To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods. David is kept at the mysterious HOTEL while he searches for a new partner, and after several romantic misadventures decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world. He ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as The Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there David meets an enigmatic stranger (Rachel Weisz) who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him…

The Lobster is set to release in theatre May 13th. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.
