"A mesmerizing thriller... 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." — Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“Twisted and absurd…never hedges its bets and never takes its foot off the gas.” — Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

Steven (Farrell), an uptight surgeon and family man, is forced to confront a misstep from his past, putting his picture-perfect suburban family, including teen son and daughter and blonde Barbie doll-like wife (Kidman), in line to pay the price in this taboo-breaking drama in which director Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER) ups the ante for his trademark transgression of the rules of behavior, language, and custom. Funny-strange becomes uneasily funny when completely arbitrary rules of revenge and justice come to the fore in this absurd off-kilter world. Steven befriends the young son of a former patient and invites him home to meet the kids, a move he will come to regret. Winner of Best Screenplay at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. DCP digital. (BS)
