Few films released this year carry the amount of acclaim as Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Lobster.” A favorite on the festival circuit last year, the dark comedy was released in May to even more enthusiastic raves, with many of IndieWire’s critics naming it one of the year’s best films so far. Starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, “The Lobster” centers around a lonely widower who books a room in a hotel resort where each guest has just 45 days to find a romantic partner or risk being turned into an animal of his/her choosing. John C. Reilly, Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux co-star.
With the film hitting DVD and Blu-ray today, August 2, IndieWire is celebrating by giving three lucky readers the chance to win a copy of the Blu-ray.
