The Killing Of A Sacred Deer

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos.
Starring: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan. UK/Ireland 2017. 121 mins.


Black humour, horror and classical tragedy collide in the second English-language feature from absurdist Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). Colin Farrell stars as Steven, a successful cardiac surgeon who enjoys a happy, healthy and affluent life in suburbia with his wife (Kidman) and two children. When he befriends a young man (Keoghan, Dunkirk) and takes him under his wing, a fatal mistake he once made on the operating table comes back to haunt him and his family in terrifying fashion. Inspired by the Greek myth of King Agamemnon, who was ordered to sacrifice his daughter after accidentally killing a sacred deer, Lanthimos’s enthralling, darkly comic horror unfolds with a carefully crafted sense of unease, and features excellent performances from its three leads.
