We Need to Talk About Kevin

In a bracing, tour-de-force performance, Tilda Swinton plays Eva, a mother contending with the increasing malevolence of her baby boy-turned-teenager Kevin (Ezra Miller). John C. Reilly is the eternally optimistic husband and father, blind to the devastating dynamic around them. 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 director/co-writer Lynne Ramsay's signature visual style, the film's moral ambiguity and unforgettable climax will have people talking about Kevin for years to come.
