The Killing of a Sacred Deer Programme 2020

by Yorgos Lanthimos Gala Premieres

Apart from a few bizarre yet harmless sexual games, the successful heart surgeon Steven Murphy, his wife Anna along with their kids Kim and Bob, live the life of an average American family. If only Steven was not tied to a strange boy called Martin by a dark secret from his past. Initially affectionate in his behaviour, the teenager soon becomes more brazen at pushing his way into Steven’s life. When his son Bob suffers a sudden and unexplainable paralysis, Steven becomes aware that he will never be able to shake off the intruder without making a sacrifice of his own… Exceptionally gifted director Yorgos Lanthimos broaches questions of guilt and suppression in a jet-black yet highly compelling psychological thriller.
