The Lobster

In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods. – Source: imdb

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring  Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, and Léa Seydoux. This “Avant Garde” movie is set on a society where single people are not accepted, they are the outcasts. Society thinks single people should not exist, it is illegal and it’s even dangerous to be a single person.

The single individuals are taken to a hotel, where a set of rules are given to them; they only got 45 days to find a mate, otherwise they will be converted into animals (of their choice). This world, like any other society, have a group of outcast that are hidden from society and also very much organize too. I do not want to give more away. The movie is entertaining and very interesting, just the thought of a society like this one sounds crazy but …when you think about it, we live in a crazy society too.

When I saw The Lobster the first thought that came to my mind was: “The story in this movie is not so different from the real world” In today’s world you become an outcast in certain situations like: when you are single, when you don’t have kids, when you don’t have the ideal body type, when you have a certain look and so on and so forth. People judge us because of how we live and especially in traditional society (like mine) If you haven't achieve certain things by the time you turn 30, you are strange and even called unlucky (but that is a post for another night).

We do have love involved in the story and we see what one guy is capable to do to find the right mate or to keep it by his side. We are living in a decade (I dare to say) where everybody is obsessed to find love! Since we have the world in the palm of our hands ...or sometimes in our back pocket, we think it should be easier to find love but it is not. 

I do recommend this movie, it is one of those movies that are underrated and maybe it didn’t make it to your local movie theater but you have to find it and watch it.

I give it...Ten Pop Corns!
