“The Lobster” Trailer


Director:  Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps)

Starring: Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly, Rachel Weisz, Colin Farrell, Ben Whishaw

Synopsis: In a dystopian future, all single human beings are faced with matching up with another, within forty-five days, or being turned into an animal.

Notes: Most people would probably see this film as entirely different than Lanthimos’s previous two features, but the style is still his own unique dark brand of comedy amid a universe all to it’s own (the self-created isolation of Dogtooth’s family and the renewed world that a lost loved one brings after their “resurrection” in Alps). Accumulating such an impressive cast of professionals, as well as full-blown absurdity, this combination of style and story will certainly revitalize the genre and bring something new.
