2015 · d. Yorgos Lanthimos
Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Olivia Colman
In a future where coupledom is mandatory, a schlubby single (Colin Farrell) is confined to a “loners” resort and given a last chance to pair off—or else be turned into a crustacean. John C. Reilly, Olivia Colman, and Rachel Weisz co-star in this grimly funny fable from absurdist master Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite).
Shown in conjunction with the course Handmaids, Hosts, and Humanity: Love and Family in Dystopian Futures, The Lobster will be introduced by its instructor, Mabel Rosenheck, Ph.D.
