Colin Farrell plays cardiologist Steven Murphy, whose wife (Nicole Kidman at her frosty best) and children are unaware of his association with an intense teenager named Martin (Barry Keoghan).
Although not sexual, the relationship between the two is disturbing, and when the true nature of their bond is revealed, it will have a devastating impact on Steven’s family. Those who have seen The Lobster will already know that Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos has the ability to make the absurd feel disconcerting. His signature use of stilted dialogue, deadpan performances and frank sexuality conjures a mounting sense of unease that often teeters into black comedy. Sharing the cold, formal style of Under the Skin and Eyes Wide Shut, this meditation on guilt, atonement and sacrifice is a bizarre and brilliant nightmare that will restore your faith in filmmaking as an art form.
