Killing of a Sacred Deer

Lauded Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite) directs, co-produces and co-writes this deadpan tale of carefully-planned revenge. Winning Best Screenplay at Cannes, the arthouse horror features an outstanding ensemble cast including British newcomer Raffey Cassidy. Sinister, unnerving and impressive, the film was co-produced by UK companies Film4, Limp Films and New Sparta Films.





Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a revered surgeon who lives what appears to be the perfect life with his wife (Nicole Kidman) and two children (Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Suljic). However, this is disrupted when teen Martin (Barry Keoghan) shows up and begins to insert himself into the doctor’s life, before it becomes startlingly clear that the boy's quest for revenge will change the family’s life forever.
