THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER
2017, Yorgos Lanthimos, UK/Ireland/USA, 121 min.
With Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Alicia Silverstone
“Twisted and absurd…never hedges its bets and
never takes its foot off the gas.”
—Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
Steven (Farrell), an uptight surgeon and family man, is forced to confront a misstep from his past, putting his picture-perfect suburban family, including teen son and daughter and blonde Barbie doll-like wife (Kidman), in line to pay the price. Director Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER) ups the ante for his trademark transgression of the rules of behavior, language, and custom in this taboo-breaking drama. Winner of Best Screenplay at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. DCP digital.
