The Killing of a Sacred Deer
After the untimely death of 16-year-old Martin's father on the operating table, little by little, a deep and empathetic bond begins to form between him and the respected cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Steven Murphy. At first, expensive gifts and then an invitation for dinner will soon earn the orphaned teenager the approval of Dr Steven's perfect family, even though right from the start, a vague, yet unnerving feeling overshadows Martin's honest intent. And then, unexpectedly, the idyllic family is smitten by a fierce and pitiless punishment, while at the same time, everything will start falling apart as the innocents have to suffer. In the end, as the sins of one burden the entire family, only an unimaginable and unendurable decision that demands a pure sacrifice can purge the soul. But to find catharsis, one must first admit the sin.

Have you got hair under your arms yet
Not long after my dad died
A surgeon never kills a patient
This meat is delicious
I wanted to say one more thing
Do you understand
She's got a great body
I'll bury you in the yard
I will make you eat your hair
The boy is very good at math and physics
I can't move them
But he died
He's got issues
We're in this situation because of you
Do you think your mother is proud of you
I believe the most logical thing
I don't understand why I should have to...
What a charming boy
Can you do something to put an end to...
Everything will be alright
I love you so much
Wear whatever you want
You have beautiful hands
Our daughter started menstruating last...
I think she
