We Need To Talk About Kevin
A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay's We Need To Talk About Kevin explores the fractious relationship between a mother and her evil son. In a bracing, tour-de- performance, Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton plays Eva, a mother contending with the increasing malevolence of her baby boy-turned-teenager Kevin (Ezra Miller). Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly is the eternally optimistic husband and father, blind to the devastating dynamic around them.
We Need To Talk About Kevin is skillfully constructed entirely from Eva's perspective, exploring nature vs. nurture on a disturbing new level as Eva's culpability is measured against Kevin's depravity. With a haunting score by Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead) and Ramsay's signature visual style, the film's moral ambiguity and unforgettable climax will have people talking about Kevin for years to come.
