Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljian) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). 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 when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.
Here’s some of what the folks that ventured to TIFF are saying about the movie:
THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER: A man who plays God meets a boy who plays devil. Clean lines, cool horror. This is totally my kinda thing.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer was chilling. Funny. And at times brutal. I loved it. #TIFF17.

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER (Lanthimos) A good time at the movies. Tart black comedy on revenge and sacrifice, if elusively weird. #TIFF17

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER has Lanthimos returning to gutting brutality of DOGTOOTH. I laughed like a psycho who knows the world is ending
