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. Based on the best-selling novel, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN is masterfully 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.
