“The Lobster”: Totalitarian Love

Francine Prose writes: Yorgos Lanthimos’s ‘new film, “The Lobster” — which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at the Cannes Film Festival, and which recently made its American debut at the New York Film Festival — takes on the subject of modern love. It posits a dystopian near-future in which it has become illegal not to be part of a couple. One can be heterosexual or homosexual, as long as one is in some kind of relationship.’ Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, are pictured.
