Colin Farrell and Yorgos Lanthimos on the ‘Awkward, Sinister’ World of ‘The Lobster’
It’s the near-distant future and your husband or wife has left you. Instead of making a Tinder profile or joining OKCupid, you check into The Hotel. There you have 45 days to find a new partner, and if you fail you’re transformed into the animal of your choosing, then released into The Forest to live out your days. Is this a foreshadowing of our future? Maybe, but it’s also the plot of Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest film, ‘The Lobster.’
