Following on from 2015’s The Lobster, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos continues his stubbornly idiosyncratic streak by demonstrating again that his is a talent not to be ignored.
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.
Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Dunkirk’s Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly 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.
Piercingly cold and uncomfortable, this film is not for the doe-eyed or faint-hearted.
