Think single life is tough? Try living in a world where you only have 45 days to find love or get turned into an animal and sent off into the woods. Yes, that wasn't a typo; I said animal. Colin Farrell stars in the whimsically interesting film "The Lobster," which won the Jury Prize award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
The trailer opens with David (Farrell) entering a (IMO, shady) facility, with a dog by his side. When asked about the dog, he replied, "This is my brother. He was here a couple of years ago, but he didn't make it." Meaning, he never found love in 45 days, so *poof* now he's an animal.
Hello? Yes, this is dog.
Farrell tries his wooing skills on various women, but to no avail. He then meets the Short Sighted Woman (Rachel Weisz) and falls in love. However, their love is forbidden, because why would anything ever be easy for anyone? But OK really, are we expected to believe that hot AF Colin Farrell was turned down by multiple women? Pfft. Riiiiiight.
