This weird movie starring Colin Farrell chronicles a man, and others like him, checking into this hotel for single people. During the application process, they each have to choose an animal they’d like to be turned into. If at the end of the 45 days stay they’re still single, they’ll be turned into that animal and sent out into the world.
