The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Poster

Trivia

Colin Farrell admittedly felt nauseous after reading the script for the film.
Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell quickly began working together on The Beguiled (2017) only a few weeks later they wrapped filming on this film. Both films would go on to be in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and both would win awards in the official competition ("The Beguiled" won the Directing award for Sofia Coppola while "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" shared the Screenplay award with Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here (2017)).
The film's title comes from the ending of the tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides.
