Film Review: 'Miss Julie'

6 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ All the pieces seemed to be in place for Liv Ullmann's take on Miss Julie (2014), Swedish playwright August Strindberg's examination of class and sexual politics set in the waning years of the 19th century. A pedigree director in the form of Ullmann, a powerful pair of leads take the shape of Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell and a sumptuous, sprawling countryside estate in Victorian-era Ireland as the setting should all, in theory, create a lovely piece of cinema. Unfortunately, there's something too jarring about what unfolds over two very long hours. Rife with mawkish histrionics and a thoroughly overwrought script, it's hard to maintain interest in what should be an intriguing watch.

The latest trailer for Colin Farrell's new sci-fi comedy The Lobster is truly weird

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The latest trailer for Colin Farrell's new science fiction comedy The Lobster is utterly bizarre.

The Lobster takes place in a dystopian future, where select adults are given 45 days to find a mate or face being turned into a wild animal.

Farrell's shy David is on a tight time clock to find 'the one' – but the woman (Rachel Weisz) he's most drawn to might be out of bounds.

The Lobster impressed critics at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, earning a Jury Prize.

Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos brings together an international cast, including Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Léa Seydoux (Spectre), John C Reilly (Chicago) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall).

The Lobster opens in UK cinemas on October 16. »

Miss Julie review – erotic Strindberg adaptation

21 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jessica Chastain plays a bored, pampered aristocrat whose dangerous flirtation with Colin Farrell’s self-hating valet takes on the feel of a sub and dom role play

This is Liv Ullmann’s first directing credit since the Bergman-scripted Faithless (2000); now she has adapted Strindberg’s Miss Julie, transplanting the action from late-19th-century Sweden to County Fermanagh of roughly the same period. It’s a fervent, cerebral, unashamedly intense movie, at times hammy, at others serious. Even its flaws arise from a refreshing high-mindedness. Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell throw themselves into their roles, turning the dials up to 11: with mixed but interesting results. The planes, contours and angles of Chastain’s face are revealed with a new closeup severity in the role of Julie. She is the bored, pampered daughter of a grand house with a dangerous below-stairs tendresse for her father’s valet John (Colin Farrell), who »

First Trailer For Colin Farrell’s The Lobster

3 September 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The English language debut from director Yorgos Lanthimos’ (Dogtooth), The Lobster, is certainly an odd one, featuring a future where you either find a mate or you’re inexplicably transformed into an animal and let roan the wilderness alone. Into this, comes Colin Farrell as a man who must fall in love or become a lobster for the rest of his life. Yes, you read that right. Already garnering great buzz from this years Cannes Film Festival, this wonderfully surreal love story is unbelievably charming with a quirky sense of fun selling the bizarre premise. Add to that a great cast surrounding Farrell, including Rachel Weisz John C. Riely, Lea Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw, and this definitely one movie to keep your eye on. Released: 16th October (Irl/U.K.) »

First Trailer For Colin Farrell’s The Lobster Teases An Orwellian Love Story

3 September 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Colin Farrell can’t catch a break, it seems. Fresh off his stint scouring the back allies of Los Angeles and dealing with alcoholism in HBO’s True Detective season 2, the Irish actor is going to be whisked into a dystopian near-future for Yorgos Lanthimos’ bizarre love story, The Lobster.

Channeling themes from George Orwell’s seminal 1984, Lanthimos’s (Dogtooth) latest imagines a society in which being single is illegal, leading community members to cordon singletons into a complex where they must find a compatible and hopefully significant other within 45 days or be turned into an animal of their choosing. Well, we did say it was bizarre.

Farrell is on board to play David in this surrealist tale, who falls head over heels for Rachel Weisz’s character. However, complications arise when it is revealed that Weisz’s unnamed character hails from a society where monogamy is strictly forbidden, and therein blossoms a forbidden romance. »

The Lobster Trailer: Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz Want to Be Each Other’s Lobsters

3 September 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When The Lobster premiered at Cannes, our Jada Yuan said it has a "hilarious deadpan absurdity," and that's evident in the film's first trailer. The film from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos bills itself as a sci-fi romantic thriller starring Colin Farrell in a dystopic world that really hates single people. Singles are rounded up and forced to find a mate in 45 days, lest they be turned into an animal of their choice. Farrell's character chose the lobster, obviously, because lobsters mate for life.The Lobster comes out in theaters in the U.K. October 16. It doesn't have a U.S. theatrical release date yet. »

New Trailer For The Lobster Simmers Online

3 September 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Recently following tortuous clues on TV as a True Detective, Colin Farrell also has an equally strange but slightly lighter movie incoming. He stars in Dogtooth director Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, as a man on a rather peculiar dating retreat. Have a look at the new trailer.As you'll have gleaned from that, The Lobster is a dystopian satire in which Colin Farrell’s recently single David visits a spa where he has 45 days to find a partner whose personality matches his. If he fails, he will be turned into an animal of his choosing and released into the wild.A hit in its festival life at the likes of Cannes and Tiff, Empire's Damon Wise caught it at the former and says it's "a true surrealist fantasy worthy of Dali and Buñuel. Lanthimos’ abstract, dryly witty dialogue translates very well, as does the conceit. The premise is brought to the surface very quickly, »

Watch: 'The Lobster' Trailer Guarantees You've Never Seen a More Bizarre Romance Movie

Read More: Cannes Review: Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Lobster' Explores a Crazy World More Familiar Than It Looks "True Detective" may not have gone as smoothly as Colin Farrell was hoping for, but luckily the actor already has a critically acclaimed rebound waiting in the wings: Yorgos Lanthimos' romantic satire "The Lobster." The film premiered at Cannes and earned praise for its ensemble cast and its absurdist humor on the nature of relationships, and it's easily one of the more anticipated titles set to play at festivals in Toronto, New York and London this awards season.  Set in somewhat of a dystopian future where society highly values relationships, the movie stars Colin Farrell as an architect who checks into a hotel after his wife leaves him. The architect has just 45 days to find a new partner or else he'll be transformed into an animal of his choosing. »

Watch: First Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Funky Film 'The Lobster'

3 September 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's no coincidence the targets are shaped like single people, and not couples." The first official trailer has debuted for Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos' new film The Lobster. Set in the "dystopian near future", this comedy is an "offbeat dating satire" featuring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Léa Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw. This earned some rave reviews out of Cannes this year but as always, you have to expect some funky twists and weird choices from Yorgos Lanthimos. Thankfully this is a suitably wacky first tease for Lanthimos' first English-language film, and I like what little glimpses we do get to see. Here's the first teaser trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, found on YouTube (via The Film Stage): In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a »

After wowing international audiences with "Dogtooth" and "Alps," Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos made his English-language debut at Cannes this year with "The Lobster," and the result was our runaway favorite film of the festival.

1 September 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Colin Farrell went to some seriously great lengths to quit his smoking habit. The True Detective actor opened up to Men's Health about how he eventually stopped himself from picking up another cigarette and revealed his rather untraditional method to ditch the vice. "I wrote a breakup letter to the Spirit of Tobacco," he told the mag. "I got a frying pan and tossed the letter with a load of tobacco, put some paraffin over it, and lit a match that sent a big, wallowing cloud up into the sky. Then I didn't have a cigarette for another two years." Well, whatever works… The Irish star also opened up about how raising his two sons, James, 11, and Henry, 5, has taken priority »

Colin Farrell Reveals Bizarre Way He Quit Smoking, Talks Single Life

File this under the "bizarre" category! Colin Farrell graces the cover of the September issue of Men’s Health, where he reveals the rather non-traditional way he quit smoking.  "I wrote a breakup letter to the Spirit of Tobacco," the 39-year-old star tells the mag. "I got a frying pan and tossed the letter with a load of tobacco, put some paraffin over it, and lit a match that sent a big, wallowing cloud up into the sky. Then I didn’t have a cigarette for another two years." The Irish actor, who once admitted to smoking 40-50 cigarettes a day, has certainly cleaned up his act. He's been sober for a decade after going to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction in 2005. He admits that his priorities have shifted and his two sons, James, 11, and Henry, 5, are the most important thing in this life. "The most significant aspect of »
