1. Yorgos Lanthimo’s The Lobster
1. Yorgos Lanthimo's The Lobster
The Plot: In a dystopian near future, single people are arrested and taken to a hotel where they must find a mate. If they don’t succeed in 45 days, they will be transformed into animals and released in the woods.
Reasons for anticipation: If its unconventional plot isn’t enough, Yorgos Lanthimos is a highly innovative filmmaker, who challenges the audience while drawing a portrait of the darkest places of the human soul. We expect big things from Lanthimos after “Dogtooth” and “Alps”. “The Lobster” will be filmed in English with performers as Colin Farrell, John C. Reilly, Ben Whishaw, Rachel Weisz and Léa Seydoux.
Keep in mind that: Athina Rachel Tsangari, producer of both “Dogtooth” and “Alps”, showed her talent as a director in “Attenberg”, a film as weird as the ones directed by Lanthimos. Her new film as a director, “Chevalier”, tells the story of a group of men returning from a winter fishing trip on a yacht. When a mechanical problem leaves them trapped on their boat, they will kill their time playing a game they devise called Chevalier.
