Hull Independent Cinema presents: THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER
Yorgos Lanthimos | 2017 | UK/Ireland | Cert 15 | 121 mins
Steven, a charismatic surgeon, is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.
Steven , an eminent cardiothoracic surgeon is married to Anna, a respected ophthalmologist. They are well off and live a happy and healthy family life with their two children, Kim, 14 and Bob, 12. Steven has formed a friendship with Martin, a fatherless 16-year-old boy whom he has taken under his wing. Things take a sinister turn when Steven introduces Martin to his family, gradually throwing their world into turmoil and forcing Steven to make a shocking sacrifice or run the risk of losing everything.
Starring Nicole Kidman, Alicia Silverstone, Colin Farrell
