Yorgos Lanthimos directs Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz and Léa Seydoux in an absurdist dystopian black romantic comedy about a divorcee who has a limited time to find new love or he will be turned into a lobster, a creature of his own choosing.
A rich black comedy full of character actors you love, delivering deadpan turns in a truly unique situation. Everyone is better off from being involved in such a sharp, bleakly involving satire. Laugh out loud funny, emotionally disturbing and with some keen observations on the meaning of love and loneliness. I’d be a hummingbird.
