We Need To Talk About Kevin - New Poster


Coming soon from Oscilloscope Laboratories, who also brought us the excellent Rare Exports and Bellflower, is the thriller We Need To Talk About Kevin. Based on the novel of the same name by Lionel Shriver, which the company I work for publishes funnily enough, it's about the relationship between a mother and her son.


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. Ramsay's masterful storytelling simultaneously combines a provocative moral ambiguity with a satisfying and compelling narrative, which builds to a chilling, unforgettable climax.
