It stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, Alicia Silverstone, and Bill Camp.

“In many ways, this is Lanthimos’ own variation of Michael Haneke’s Funny Games, a shocking morality play where there is no control, no easy choices and no happy ending.

The difference is that where Haneke played with the inevitability of death Lanthimos is more focused having the horror of what you’ve just seen linger with both the audience and the characters onscreen.

He doesn’t just want you to be repulsed, but emotionally devastated. A gorgeously rendered gut punch that ends up being no laughing matter.”

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and wrote the screenplay with Efthymis Filippou.

Produced by Ed Guiney and Lanthimos.

The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. At Cannes, Lanthimos and Filippou won the Best Screenplay award.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer opens October 27, 2017.
