I need to say right off the mark that The Little Hours won’t appeal to everyone. If you are the kind of person whose favorite movie is The Princess Bride and reruns of Monte Python are your go-to late night fare, then The Little Hours is for you.
The Lobster is a strange dystopian look at a future where the social contract requires people to be coupled up. If they are not, they are relegated to an outsider’s existence as loners who can be hunted down for rewards. Beware the spoilers.
