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
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.
Brilliant story telling. More than expert performances. Hard subject to rely to an audience, this was the best!
This movie will haunt me for awhile..Chilling!
Such a powerful movie about youth, family and mental health.
