The Lobster (Blu-ray release 2016-8-2) is a drama with a unique setting: every single adult is sent to a “hotel” and given 45 days to find a romantic partner, or gets transformed into an animal.  At the other extreme, those people who escaped from the hotel form a group which disallows any romantic relationship.

This movie is intriguing primarily because of this setting.  The second cause is that some characters are very odd – that includes the protagonist, who chooses to make bad decisions that clearly normal people would not make.  Unfortunately, the plot depends on such stupidity to move forward.  The ending does not make sense from a practical point of view.
