SANTA MONICA, CA – Director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) reunites with Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, In Bruges, 2009) in one of this year’s most frightening thrillers, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital) and DVD January 23 from Lionsgate. Co-starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress, The Hours, 2003), the 2017 Cannes Film Festival Best Screenplay winner is an unforgettable thriller about the sacrifices one man has to make in order to protect his family.
Dr. Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of Steven’s idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen he has covertly taken under his wing. As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.
Unforgettably enthralling and suspenseful, the Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh The Killing of a Sacred Deer includes a behind-the-scenes featurette and will be available on Blu-ray (plus Digital) and DVD for $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
