The Killing of a Sacred Deer in Cinemas in November

SEEN thought Yorgos Lanthimos’s last film The Lobster was a daring piece of cinema; chilling and upsetting in a very real sense, and his new film The Killing of a Sacred Deer out on November 17th looks set to top even that for psychological horror.

Starring Colin Farrell (who was also in The Lobster) and Nicole Kidman, the story sees Farrell as a surgeon, Steven, and Kidman as Anna, an opthalmologist living a comfortable, bourgeois life with their children. But when a fatherless boy, Martin (Barry Keoghan) is taken under Steven’s wing, he causes chaos in the happy family by forcing Steven to make a terrible sacrifice, or lose everything. With the icon of the American family threatened by choices from a classical Greek tragedy, Lanthimos continues his cinematic assault on our most dearly held preconceptions about the sanctity of family life.
