About the Movie
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-force 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Acting doesn't get much better than the subtly brilliant display put on by Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin.
Rotten: The narrative strategy amounts to little more than film-school strenuousness, and in the end it can't conceal the movie's essential crudeness - its coarse, artless dialogue, blank character writing and intellectual vacuity.
Fresh: Lynne Ramsay's thoughtful, unnerving film works its strange power over viewers who are likely to find themselves as compelled as repelled by its fatally flawed key players.
Fresh: That the film works so brilliantly is a tribute in large part to the actors.
Loved the style of this film and Tilda Swinton is amazing. Highly recommended.
Tilda Swinton is amazing
I loved this movie & watched it twice in 24 hours then had to go read the book and also finished it in 24 hours BUT if you want a feel good movie this is not for you.
Different movie. Wish there were more answers to questions......but i guess that's how we get to talk about about it.
