David (Colin Farrell) lives in a near-future where it is illegal to be single. After his wife leaves him, he is arrested and transferred to The Hotel, where like other residents, he has 45 days to find a new mate – if he fails, he will be transformed into an animal of his choice and released into The Woods.
The English language debut of Greek director Lanthimos – who first gained international recognition with his debut feature Dogtooth – was shot in Ireland.
Ahead of the screening we will be joined by Imelda Nagle-Ryan, a talented classical guitarist from Celbridge whose musical abilities have recently been recognized by the award winning Oscar Nominated film director, Yorgos Lanthimos, when he cast her in the film as the Mother of Léa Seydoux. Two of the pieces which Imelda played as a duet in the movie are featured on her debut album as a solo version. Imelda will give a short recital before the screening and will stay to chat with audiences afterwards.
