A man who plays God for a living meets a boy who chooses to play Devil in Yorgos Lanthimos’ chilling and breath-taking new film.
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, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing.
Once again, as he did with ‘The Lobster’, Lanthimos is working in a deeply metaphorical register, using an impossible situation to illuminate relatable human fears. With uniformly great performances throughout the cast and Lanthimos’ stunning eye for detail and composition, this is one of the most unforgettable films of the year.
