We Need to Talk About Kevin
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Lynne Ramsay
2011 / 112min / 35mm
Tilda Swinton gives a revelatory performance as Eva Khatchadourian, an anguished mother whose son, the Kevin of the title, is currently imprisoned for a killing spree he committed shortly before his 16th birthday, reflecting—shown via flashback—on her failures to connect with the difficult, withdrawn child throughout his upbringing. Becker, under Ramsay’s direction, dressed the Khatchadourian home to deliberately suggest the artifice of a film set—a just slightly-off soundstage version of domestic comfort and order that betrays something deeply amiss within the family.
