Details

Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) has crafted a sensational thriller brimming with unsettling humour, creeping dread, Hitchcockian psychodrama, and riveting suspense. Dr.Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a renowned surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and their two exemplary children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing. As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear. 

The screening on Mon 13 Nov (18.00) will be introduced by Alistair Harkness as part of the Contemporary Cinema Course. Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer delivers high-tension, eerie and unsettling cinema: you’ll feel deeply uncomfortable while watching, but in a twistedly enjoyable way.
