UNITED KINGDOM , Ireland | 109 minutes | 2017

A chilling, horrific thriller that takes its title from Greek tragedy. Winner of best screenplay at the last Cannes Festival. A heart surgeon develops a strange relationship with a 16-year-old boy who infiltrates his family to the point where awkwardness veers into abomination. With its formal brilliance, tight staging, razor-sharp dialogue and anxiety-inducing atmosphere, the film by the genius director of Canine (Louve d’or at FNC 2009) and The Lobster drags audiences kicking and screaming into murky waters.
