The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos. UK, 2017. 2h 1m. Starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Alicia Silverstone, Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy, Bill Camp.

A characteristically unsettling and engrossing modern Greek tragedy by the director of The Lobster. The life of a successful cardiac surgeon is thrown into turmoil after he befriends a fatherless 16 year-old boy whose behaviour becomes increasingly menacing.

'A wildly uncomfortable, venomously funny Greek tragedy…When absurdism feels this wrong, you know it’s being done right.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘This is like a high-tension Hollywood thriller that’s been beaten over the head by the works of Ingmar Bergman on crystal meth’ ★★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
