Winner of this year’s Cannes Jury Prize, the new film and English-language debut from the idiosyncratic mind of Yorgos Lanthimos (Alps, Dogtooth) is a deadpan absurdist satire of modern romance that could only have come from the Greek auteur.

In the near future, single citizens are sent to a hotel where they have 45 days to pair off with a mate – or be turned into the animal of their choosing and hunted in the woods. Reviews suggest thatThe Lobster is fiercely, unmistakably Lanthimos: surreal, grimly funny and strangely moving.

The Lobster features an all-star cast including Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Lea Seyoux and John C. Reilly, and comes to limited Australian cinemas from October 22. Check out the trailer below:
