Dark Satire 'The Lobster' Pushes the Rules of Relationships to Extremes

Director Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster is an absurdist dark comedy which showcases a dystopian society in which being single is illegal. Those without partners are forced to check into a hotel to find a mate...and if they don't, the consequences are dire (but also hilarious).

Said Lanthimos following a New York Film Festival screening of the film, "I wanted to do something about relationships, and how people are under so much pressure to be successful in that domain. You find certain ways of justifying why you make certain choices in relationships. You tell yourself why you can approach someone, be with someone, leave someone. Pushing that to extremes in this movie enhances our understanding of relationships."
