Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, 2017, United Kingdom, Rated R, 121 min.

Filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) returns with a sensational thriller brimming with unsettling humor and creeping dread, steeped in Greek tragedy, existential horror, Hitchcockian psychodrama, and riveting suspense. Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljian) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing. As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family's domestic bliss. Darting confidently between genres to subvert our expectations at every turn, The Killing of a Sacred Deer firmly cements director/co-writer Lanthimos in the pantheon of world-class auteurs and marks him as a cinematic provocateur without precedent.
