Product Description

A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin explores the factious relationship between a mother and her son. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 15 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.

-----

Le film raconte l’histoire d’une mère ayant sacrifié sa carrière pour élever son fils. Malgré elle, Eva est impliquée dans une tragédie lorsque celui-ci commet l’irréparable. Dévastée par la culpabilité et l’incompréhension, elle plongera dans les flashbacks de ses souvenirs, nous faisant ainsi découvrir le climat extrêmement malsain dans lequel son fils et elle ont évolué.

4.0 out of 5 stars We need to talk about the movie's music June 9 2012
By OpenMind TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I haven't read the book upon which the movie is based, so I think I'm able to give a relatively unbiased opinion of the film's merits vs. deficiencies.

Tilda Swinton plays Eva, the mother of the titular character. It's apparent that she draws the suspicion, hostility, and curiosity of the people in town pretty much from the get-go. What's not immediately as clear is WHY. The focal event which has turned her neighbours against her is revealed in a series of flashbacks. The movie doesn't put all of its stock, however, into stringing us along, keeping us in suspense until lifting the curtain on what great tragedy occurred to have this woman impugned and hated. Instead, it tells the story of her relationship with her son in an attempt to shed some light on his development and how he ended up a convicted criminal. Before he is even born, she's ambivalent about having a child. He's a fussy infant whom she resents, then a headstrong toddler towards whom she behaves either passively-aggressively or simply full-on aggressively, even accidentally breaking his arm in a fit of frustration. Racked with guilt, she then becomes somewhat overly permissive with Kevin as his manipulative behaviour continues and escalates. Swinton, whom I've found to be a reliable--but not necessarily "star quality"--actress, never strays into either melodramatic nor disinterested territory, which I thought could be a risk with this character. Swinton portrays Eva's vulnerabilities and strengths in a balanced manner and manages to craft a character to whom the audience is sympathetic (without simply pitying her), despite her evident shortcomings.

John C. Reilly, a favourite of mine, plays her clueless husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like a dark July 17 2014
Format:Blu-ray
If you like a dark, creepy psychological thriller, this movie is for you. These are my favourite kinds of movies to watch. The kind that leave you thinking about what you just watched for hours after it has ended. If I had known this was based on a book before I had started watching it, I would have loved to had read it first. Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly portray a husband and wife who were a young and adventurous travelling couple, until an unplanned pregnancy puts their carefree life on hold. Kevin is a troubled boy who realizes at a very young age that his mother may not love him the same way other mothers love their kids, which results in his violent behaviour.

This movie was filmed in a way that makes you think. It jumps from timeline to timeline. When Kevin was a baby, to when he was a toddler, a young boy and a teen. It took a couple of scenes before I became able to tell which timeline the film had just jumped too, but to me, that is what made this film even more interesting. The music choices were great. Any movie that pairs a seemingly happy song with a dark and disturbing scene in the movie and can pull it off gets points in my book.

Tilda Swinton does a great job in portraying a mother who is second guessing herself and the way she brought up her son. John C. Reilly was the only thing about this movie that kind of threw me off. It may be because we are so used to seeing him in comedies that seeing him in this role didn’t work for me. Now, Ezra Miller. What an amazing young actor. I had seen Perks of Being a Wallflower before watching this movie and let me tell you, he plays to completely different characters. I am always impressed by an actor that can play a charming, class clown in one movie and a dark, disturbed young teenager in another. He is definitely an actor I would look out for in the future.

Overall, this is definitely the kind of movie for you if you are looking for something dark and thought-provoking.

Well I'm not going to tell you the full detail's of the movie because there are spoilers below that you can read but i have to say this movie left me so drained after viewing it i felt so sorry for Tilda Swinton i have never seen an actress work so hard in a movie doing house chores before. this young man [Ezra Miller]is so good in his role as the bad seed is so well played it's scarey.and then there is John C.Reily who is so stupid to fact the conflict between mother and son he dose nothing but add to it by buying him a bow & arrow.the only thing he wanted was his oral sex.i think i better stop or i will give it away.We Need to Talk About Kevin (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning film Sept. 19 2012
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Eva (Tilda Swinton) is a wife and mother who has just experienced the last in a series of shattering incidents. In flashbacks, we see her happy life change forever with the birth of her unusual son. From that first day, she never feels any bond with him while he seems equally detached from and even hateful toward her.

This is an incredibly intense and heartbreaking film, dealing with the problem of alienation, the nature of familial love, and unspeakable violence. All of the actors are excellent and I'm surprised they and the movie didn't get some Oscar nominations. Swinton is utterly convincing as the emotionally-drained mother; she kept me on the edge of my seat every second. John C. Reilly is very likable as the naïve, loving husband. The three young actors who play Kevin are remarkable; their performances are so intense I could barely watch them, yet couldn't look away. The flashback format is sometimes confusing but helps to convey the chaotic, emotional, roller coaster that is Eva's life.

This chilling, excruciatingly sad story is hard to watch, but the acting, writing, and direction are just outstanding. Highly recommended (but not if you're looking for a fun movie).
