Yorgos LanthimosColin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan

Ireland / UK / 2017 / 121 minutes / DCP / Color

Inspired by classical Greek mythology, Lanthimo’s (The Lobster, 40th) latest work is a brooding requiem of domestic horror. The modern Agamemnon must sacrifice a family member to escape punishment for a medical error. Revealing its surprises in layers, this hypnotic tale of guilt and retribution takes on a metaphorical register, underscored by the subdued intensity of Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman. There’s little hope for a happy ending in this Cannes Best Screenplay winner, but no shortage of extreme discomfort.
