We Need to Talk About Kevin
Directed by Lynne Ramsay
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. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 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
In this Golden Globe nominated psychological thriller, Oscar winner Tilda Swinton plays Eva, the mother of the evil Kevin (Ezra Miller). Eva contends with her clueless husband (John C. Reilly) and her son's malevolent ways, as the narrative builds to a chilling and unforgettable climax.
Cast: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly, Ezra Miller
Was expecting it to be more. I read reviews before watching. It is all in the eye of the watcher with this one, her blank stare seemed to be numbness to me and the acting could have been better but all in all there is definitely a message there.
Disappointed, i can't get this file to play--i've read the book and was particularly interested in seeing this--but oh well, from other reviewers, it seems it wouldn't be worth my time anyway
Very disappointed in this movie. No rhyme or reason.
I was so excited to see this but was completely let down by the ending. I can’t go into detail due to spoilers but suffice it to say no one would have treated the mother that way. The unbelievableness of it ruined what would have been remembered as a gripping story and fantastic performances. Don’t bother .
From the reviews I was expecting something great and was horribly disappointed. Slow moving, cliche moments all build up to not much. Stinson in a "tour-de-force performance" really was a far stretch. More like blank faced same look through the entire movie. Not earth shattering acting from anyone. Knocks into a hard subject but not in an emotional way that you want to grip into and feel utter sympathy for the characters. Dismal at best.
