Linenhall Film Club brings its successful spring 2016 programme to a close on Tuesday June 7 at 8pm with The Lobster, a wonderfully off-the-wall finale and a film that will stay with you long after the lights go up. Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival, this deliciously surreal film from Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth ) in his English language debut, stars Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz and was filmed entirely in Ireland.
It’s a love story set in the near future where single people are arrested and transferred to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into the woods. A desperate man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live and falls in love, although it is against their rules.
Linenhall Film Club screens every second Tuesday. Full details about the Linenhall Film Club and its forthcoming programme from the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar. Tel: (094 ) 9023733 or log on to www.thelinenhall.com
