The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Steven Murphy, a skilled cardiothoracic surgeon, finishes an open heart surgery, and later goes to a diner where he meets a teenage boy named Martin, who appears to have a form of neurodevelopmental disorder. Steven seems to be a mentor to Martin, but the precise nature of their relationship is unexplained. Afterward, Steven returns home to his wife, Anna, and their children, Kim and Bob, and reveals his connection to Martin, claiming he is a schoolmate of Kim's. He later privately tells Anna that Martin's father died in a car accident ten years earlier, and that he has taken an interest in the boy to help him grieve. At Steven's suggestion, Martin comes to the Murphy household for dinner; Kim seems particularly taken with him. Read more on Wikipedia.
