Director Yorgos Lanthimos impressed with his weird dystopian love story THE LOBSTER. Now he is back with a more sinister approach in new horror thriller THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER
The Killing Of A Sacred Deer stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Barry Keoghan and Alicia Silverstone. People may remember Keoghan as (Wayne), the young kid on the bicycle in the Irish gangland series Love/Hate.
As well as Love/Hate, Barry Keoghan has bagged roles in Irish crime/comedy Traders; Also, Northern Irish “troubles” movie, 71 with Jack O’Connell; Also, Christopher Nolan’s war drama, Dunkirk which starred Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy. He also had a part in Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson.
I think young Keoghan is one of the best upcoming actors and it’s great, he’s Irish. Loving that he has chosen to go down such a dark path with his roles. The first time I saw him, I thought “wow, you look like an evil little shit”. I believe we’re going to be seeing him in some phenomenally dark roles in the future…I hope so, anyway
The Killing Of A Sacred Dear reunites director, Lanthimos with The Lobster star, Colin Farrell.
