It's Greek to me

For a review in Variety on the new film by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos: The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

They wanted a conceptual image that evoked the tone of the "Greek Weird Wave" film, which is about a heart surgeon whose prior transgression results in him having to choose which member of his family will be sacrificed. The title refers to the Greek tale of King Agamemnon killing one of the deer that belonged to the Goddess, Artemis. He was then forced to murder his daughter Iphigenia to appease her.

Thank you so much to my AD on this, Allison!
