We Need To Talk About Kevin - Trailer

Not so long ago I previewed the above poster for the upcoming movie We need To Talk About Kevin here. The film features Tilda Swinton, who has been nominated for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Now I can share the trailer, and confirmed release dates, with you.

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.

Distributed by Oscilloscope Laboratories, We Need To Talk About Kevin opens in NY on January 27th, LA on February 3rd and a wide release later in February.
