A mother, father and their three late-teenage children live in a detached house, from which only the father ever ventures. But with the arrival of a visitor, the edifices of their hermetic universe begin to crumble.

The rigorously controlled second film by Greek writer-director Yorgos Lanthimos is a tragicomic, increasingly darkening fable offering a cruel parody of family life.

Think a sitcom made by Michael Haneke.
