The Lobster (2015) Rated R

In a dystopian future, single people are taken to The Hotel, where they have 45 days to find a romantic partner or they will be transformed into a beast and sent away. Starring  Jacqueline Abrahams, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, Jessica Barden, and Colin Farrell.

This film, if you can’t tell by the synopsis, is a little on the weird side. It’s strange, bizarre, and peculiar all at the same time. The film takes a look at relationships and the outcast feeling of singlehood. We watch as Farrell’s character loses his wife and checks into the hotel to find his next partner. The humor comes from the wide variety of characters and their stilted conversations. The weirdness is what makes this film; it starts with black humor, and the lives of these characters unfold into a bizarre reality. This film is strange but one that you can’t help but watch. It’s worth the watch.
