No matter the subject matter, nearly all of A24’s releases end up being pretty dark genre films. The next one is pretty interesting, especially since it stars both Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman.
After having its world premiere in Competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, A24 will release Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer on November 3, 2017 in limited release.
Also starring Alicia Silverstone and Bill Camp, THR shared an extended synopsis that piqued our interest:
In the psychological revenge thriller, Farrell plays a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family, but when the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.
It sounds pretty dark and something the company behind The Witch, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, Ex Machina, Tusk, Under the Skin, and even The Monster would release.
