Killing of a Sacred Deer: Yorgos Lanthimos’ Follow Up to The Lobster

Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which was announced as part of the 2017 Cannes Film Fest competition, will hit theaters November 3 in limited release.

Starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, the movie tells the story of a surgeon who forms a familial bond with a sinister teenage boy, with disastrous results.

Bill Camp, Alicia Silverstone, and Barry Keoghan also star.

Lanthimos received original screenplay nomination for his absurdist dystopian black comedy The Lobster (co-written by Efthimis Filippou), also released by A24.

In 2015, the distributor earned best picture and best director recognition for Lenny Abrahamson’s low-budget indie, Room,  as well as a best actress Oscar for Brie Larson.

A24 will also release this year:

David Lowery’s Sundance feature, A Ghost Story, with Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara, as well as follow-ups from filmmakers Andrew Haigh (Lean on Pete) and David Robert Mitchell (Under the Silver Lake).
