We Need to Talk About Kevin

Rated R 110 min. 2012

This absorbing, haunting film, based on the acclaimed novel by Gastonia, N.C., native Lionel Shriver, is part character study and part social commentary. Tilda Swinton stars as a mother living with the aftermath of a horrifying crime committed by her teenage son. With searing minimalism, Swinton expertly channels the conflicting complexities of a mother who both fears and loathes her child yet cannot bring herself, against all logic, to quit trying to understand him or earn his love. The bulk of the film is art house horror; Swinton confers its humanity.
