The Lobster

The surreal parable from Yorgos Lanthimos is set in a dystopian near-future in which single people who fail to find a proper mate are transformed into the animal of their choice. Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Lea Seydoux and Ben Whishaw star in one of last year's buzziest Cannes titles, originally acquired by Alchemy but then picked up by A24.
