Yorgos Lanthimos returns with this stunning esoteric thriller, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, reuniting with his The Lobster star Colin Farrell who plays Doctor Steven Murphy.
A charismatic and talented surgeon, Steven lives with his ophthalmologist wife and two children in seemingly idyllic suburban bliss.
But Martin, a young fatherless man who Steven has taken under his wing, begins to ingratiate himself with the Murphy family in increasingly disturbing ways.
As Steven’s children begin to get ill, Martin’s intentions become horrifyingly clear, and Steven is confronted with unthinkable choices.
