The Killing of a Sacred Deer Nominated in European Film Awards
06 Nov 2017 :
'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' has landed three nominations at this year’s European Film Awards, which honours the greatest achievements in European Cinema.

Colin Farrell is nominated for Best Actor, while Director Yorgos Lanthimos is nominated for best director as well as European screenwriter along with Efthimis Filippou.

The nominations follow a strong US opening, with the film already grossing $625k. The Cannes winning film opened across the UK and Ireland this weekend following positive reviews from both the media and cinema-goers alike. It will be released across the world in the coming months.​

Speaking on the nominations, producer Ed Guiney commented:

“I’m delighted for everyone involved in The Killing of a Sacred Deer that it’s getting such an endorsement from the European Film Awards, it’s a real honour.”

Guiney was previously the recipient of the European co-production award - Prix Eurimages. The winners will be announced on at the 30th European Film Awards Ceremony on Saturday, 9 December, in Berlin.​

'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' sees Colin Farrell reunite with Lanthimos. Farrell stars as Steven, a charismatic surgeon forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart when the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing takes a sinister turn. Nicole Kidman also stars as the wife of Farrell’s character, along with young, Irish actor Barry Keoghan (’71 and Dunkirk), Raffey Cassidy (Tomorrowland), Sunny Suljic (The Unspoken), Bill Camp (12 Years a Slave) and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless).

'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' was produced by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe’s Element Pictures (The Lobster, Room, A Date for Mad Mary). Lanthimos and his regular collaborator, Efthymis Filippou, co-wrote the project, which was shot last Autumn in Cincinnati, Ohio.​

The film is financed by Film4 and New Sparta Films along with the Irish Film Board. The project was developed by Element Pictures with support from Film4. HanWay Films is worldwide sales agent with A24 on board as US distributor.
