Story


A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay's "WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN" explores the factious relationship between a mother and her son. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 15 years with the increasing malevolence of her first-born child, Kevin (Ezra Miller).

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, "WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN" explores nature vs. nurture on a whole new level as Eva's own culpability is measured against Kevin's innate evilness. Ramsay's masterful storytelling simultaneously combines a provocative moral ambiguity with a satisfying and compelling narrative, which builds to a chilling, unforgettable climax.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Ramsay only succeeds in making what was once allusive banal..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
“..despite the scenario's ample opportunities for scoring facile anti-contemporary culture/sociology points, Ramsay insists on keeping her parable raw and elemental..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..it's more horror movie than insightful psychological study..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
