  • Description

    Yorgos Lanthimos co-writes and directs this surreal sci-fi comedy drama starring Colin Farrell. Set in a dystopian future where failure to find a partner is unacceptable, recently widowed David (Farrell) is given just 45 days to find a replacement partner. In line with the rules of The City, singletons are taken to The Hotel where they are forced to find a mate and those that fail to pair up are transformed into an animal of their choosing and sent into the surrounding woods. Although David appears less desperate than some of his fellow guests to forge a new relationship, he tries his best to create a union with a fellow cold-hearted resident (Angeliki Papoulia). But after his latest attempt at a relationship fails, David flees The Hotel and into the wilderness where he falls in love with a Loner (Rachel Weisz) despite the militant group's ban on romantic interactions. The film was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical (Farrell) and the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

    When will my order arrive?

    • If the items are in stock, we’ll aim to dispatch them within 24 hours of your order being placed. Due to the increased volumes of orders being received and the social distancing measures that our warehouse teams are following, there may be a slight delay with dispatching orders, and we thank you for your patience. 
    • Orders sent via Royal Mail 48® are usually received within two to five working days, including Saturdays. Due to current delays, please allow seven days for delivery.
    • Orders sent via the Royal Mail 24® service will be dispatched the same day if ordered by 2pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
    • We will aim to dispatch pre-orders so that you receive them on the release date.
    • Where an item is 'Back in stock soon', we'll aim to receive more stock within a week and will dispatch any orders once the shipment has arrived.
    • Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at the warehouse. In this instance, we'll send weekly updates to keep our customers aware.

    • Free delivery is available for most items when the order exceeds £20, but any exceptions will be clearly highlighted.

    Will you tell me when my order is on its way?

    • We will email you as soon as each item is ready to be dispatched so you know when to expect them, but you can also check the status of your order in your account.
    • We don’t always ship everything together so check your dispatch email for more details - we’ll send you a dispatch email per parcel.
    • If your order contains items that are out of stock, we’ll ship the in-stock items as soon as we can and will dispatch the out-of-stock items as soon as we’ve received more stock in the warehouse
