Summary:
 
A science fiction comedy drama. Set in a dystopian near future, single people are arrested and transferred to The Hotel where they must find romantic partners in 45 days or be transformed into animals and sent off into the woods.  A desperate man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where the Loners live. As strange as it is thrillingly ambitious.  Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Léa Seydoux. 
 
What the Critics say:
 
"A European arthouse film par excellence - precisely the kind of project you can't imagine ever being made in Hollywood."  (Geoffrey Macnab - The Independent)
