Yorgos Lanthimos’ feature film The Lobster is competing for the Palme d'Or in the 2015 Cannes Festival (13-24/5/2015). Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C.Reilly and Lea Seydoux, it is set in dystopian future, where single people are forced to mate in a facility, called the Hotel, within 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into the animal of their choice and are released in the woods.

This is not the first time one of Lanthimos’ films competes in Cannes; his film Dogtooth has won the Un Certain Regard prize in 2009.
