Here in the West we are happy enough with our ability to find love, feeling sorry for the single and even sneering at the Indian 'arranged marriage' idea; what if the world decided you HAD to be in a relationship? If you weren't, or your partner left you, you had 45 days to find another one or...be turned into the animal of your choice!
Colin Farrell plays David, sent to a 'love-hotel' to find a partner. His choice of animal, if he fails is (you guessed it) a Lobster. With many other stars, including John C Reilly, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman, we follow his attempts to find a mate.
The Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps) has always liked 'alternative reality' based on strict rules and here, with his first English language film, he has "broadened his scope and has created a marvellously bleak, bizarre comedy" - John Bleasdale, CineVue - which has won him a Jury prize at Cannes.
