We Need To Talk About Kevin (AFI Film Fest 2011)

We Need To Talk About Kevin is brilliantly creepy. It inhabits a place that few films venture to, and even fewer successfully convey a subtle darkness in a real and believable way. Tilda Swinton gives a remarkable performance as a mother dealing with the upbringing and after-math of her child's devious behavior. The actors who play her son at various ages (Ezra Miller, Jasper Newell, Rock Duer) all give equally riveting portrayals of a wayward mind as it descends into a land of no return. If you're looking for a conventional, happy-ending kind of Hollywood movie, this isn't it. We Need To Talk About Kevin is a disturbingly memorable slice of cinema.

It opens in NYC and Los Angeles on December 9th.
