Product Description

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.

Tilda Swinton give a disturbingly good performance through this entire movie. It's a refreshing take on regular killer movies. Ezra Miller is also giving a chilling performance in is role of a cold-blooded killer.
This movie is to be seen!

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.

This movie is fantastic. Has an eerie feel to it. Ezra Miller plays a great role as Kevin. Great performances by John C Riley and Tilda Swinton. Different to see Riley play a role outside of his comfort zone of comedy. This movie is a must see and very underrated

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.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 11 2015
Format: DVD
The film is told in juxtaposing flashbacks with Kevin as a teen (Ezra Miller) and a child (Jasper Newell). It centers around his mother Eva (Tilda Swinton) whose life has gone from having fun in Paris to a living hell. We know Kevin ends up in jail over some haunting event which has caused everyone to hate Eva. The film shows us injured people, a little girl with an eye patch, a man in a wheel chair and we think "Kevin?" The film also likes to use the color red.

It is a mystery in which everyone knows what has happened except the audience. Kevin is smart, mean, and cynical. He seems to represent a generation raised on too much TV and computers, although we don't see him over indulging in either.

Tilda Swinton gives us a great performance in a script that is disjointed by design to give us a specific feel. If you like a film that is designed to make you feel drained after watching it, this is it.
