The Killing of a Sacred Deer — Trailer


added: Wed, Aug 16th '17

After the critically acclaimed dystopian comedy "The Lobster," cult Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and Colin Farrell have once again teamed up for another head-scratcher of a film -- though this appears to be more psychologically ominous than humorous.

In "The Killing of a Sacred Deer," Farrell plays a successful surgeon who, while examining a baffling case of paralysis in children, develops a unique kinship with a strange teenage boy who may or may not be what he appears to be.

"Dunkirk" actor Barry Keoghan co-stars as the teenager, while Nicole Kidman, who just starred with Farrell in Sofia Coppola's Civil War-set thriller "The Beguiled," plays a distraught mother.

Winner of Best Screenplay at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it drew rave reviews, "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" also stars Alicia Silverstone, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, and Bill Camp.

The film is slated for an October 27th theatrical release. In the meantime, you can check out the film's debut trailer (above), featuring a creepy a cappella version of Ellie Goulding's song "Burn."

A teenager's attempts to bring a brilliant surgeon into his dysfunctional family take an unexpected turn.
