Love/Hate’s Barry Keoghan is getting plenty of praise for his role in new psychological thriller ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’.
The 25 year-old stars alongside fellow Irishman Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman where he plays a sinister teenage boy who forms a close bond with a surgeon (played by Farrell).
The film comes from director of The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos and is said to be among the best films of the yearaccording to advanced viewings. Keoghan has been singled out for the quality of his “wonderfully disturbing” performance as the villain.
The Dublin-born man’s performance in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk earned him a spot on Variety’s top 10 actor’s to watch in 2017 and this will definitely help the rising star’s career.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer is expected in Irish cinemas November 3rd.
