Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

After his wife leaves him, David (Colin Farrell) is sent to a hotel for single adults and urged to find a new significant other within 45 days -- if he fails, he will be transformed into an animal of his choosing. David eventually meets a runaway from the hotel (Rachel Weisz), and the two begin a secret romance. Léa Seydoux, Jessica Barden, Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and John C. Reilly co-star. This absurdist dystopian comedy is the first English-language feature from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, and was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi
