The Killing Of A Sacred Deer (DVD)
Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos presents a tale of mythical, strategic revenge that starts with an ironic chuckle and moves towards a silent scream that is impossible to stop in this tale of retribtuion. This critically acclaimed 5 star horror drama film stars award winning actors, Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman.
Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a successful, wealthy cardiac surgeon who lives a happy family life with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two children Kim (Raffey Cassidy) and Bob (Sunny Suljic). Their perfect life begins to crumble when he befriends 16-year-old Martin (Barry Keoghan). He begins to spend much time with the teenager and brings him to his home, around his wife and kids with whom he begins to socialise with.
When Steven visits Martin and his mother (Alicia Silverstone) for dinner at their home, the teenager's motives for their unusual friendship become clear and he won't stop until he gets it destroying anything in his path - including Steven's family if he needs to.
What the press said:
Working as a profound meditation on karma, predestination and guilt and a proper scary movie, this is near career-best work from all involved. Be warned: this is tough stuff. - Empire
Lanthimos has made a tense, heart-wrenching tale with an admirably askance view of humanity that's a worthy successor to his prior works - the Atlantic
