Based on the principle that two people are better than one, this weird and wonderful film is set in the near future where it is against the law to be single. Those without a mate are given 40 days in a hotel to ‘pair up’ or they will be transformed into animals. One of the most daring and original films in years by one of cinemas most controversial directors Yorgos Lanthimos. This is a film not to be missed.
One of the most intriguing and mind-boggling films of recent years. It’s a truly original take on loneliness, compatibility and the construction of social norms.
