The Killing of a Sacred Deer

1h 56m Drama 2017

AroView: Colin Farrell returns for the singular director of THE LOBSTER for another round of macabre absurdism, this time cast as a cardiovascular surgeon and family man whose idyllic domestic existence gradually unravels after he befriends a seemingly benign fatherless teenager.

A bracing thriller brimming with unsettling humour and creeping dread, steeped in Greek tragedy, Hitchcockian psychodrama, and riveting suspense. Darting confidently between genres to subvert audience expectations at every turn, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER firmly cements director Yorgos Lanthimos (THE FAVOURITE) in the pantheon of world-class auteurs and marks him as a cinematic provocateur without precedent.

“To see an unfettered nightmare like this from such an idiosyncratic director feels like a cruel treat, and a welcome stylistic stretch.” ~ New York Magazine.
