Film show: 'Killing of a Sacred Deer', 'Based on a True Story', 'Racer and the Jailbird'

Film critic Emma Jones talks us through the week's releases and tells us why Yorgos Lanthimos's latest release is just as delightful as it is disturbing. "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" sees Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell playing husband and wife in a tale that takes its inspiration from Greek tragedy. We also check out Roman Polanski’s latest release, "Based on a True Story" and applaud a strong performance from French actress Laetitia Dosch in the award-winning début feature "Jeune Femme".

Finally, we find out why Belgium’s fast-paced love story "Racer and the Jailbird" is on the wrong track, despite its charismatic lead actors.
