We Need to Talk About Kevin (112 mins)
Lynne Ramsay's bold, ambitious and visually stunning film was a triumphant return, after nearly a decade of frustrated projects. Tilda Swinton plays Eva, the mother of a boy who has committed mass murder in an American high school. Ramsay's brave and challenging adaptation of Lionel Shriver's acclaimed novel explores the limits of parental love, and suggests that while we need to talk about Kevin, we also need to talk about his mother.
