Uncomfortable but essential viewing

We Need To Talk About Kevin is an outstanding film, albeit dark, disturbing, and uncomfortable to watch. Enjoying this film is tough and unlikely - but being moved by it is undoubted. It flits back and forth along a timeline which extends over years but really encapsulates the emotions (mostly that of hatred and despair) on display. Whilst at first it is difficult to comprehend exactly what is what, the film quickly begins to tie up the loose ends and places you directly in the centre of a maternal nightmare. Tilda Swinton is captivating in her performance whilst young Ezra Miller is haunting. Uncomfortable but essential viewing.

We Need To Talk About Kevin (Blu Ray)

The film explores the plight of mother, Eva (played by Tilda Swinton) as she reflects on how she could have possibly raised a seriously disturbed teenage son with her husband, played by John C. Reilly, (at his easy going and affable best). Tilda Swinton delivers a fantastic performance, single handedly portraying the successful author's anguish at various life stages in raising her children. Her character struggles to balance her career with the demands of nurturing her children and devoting time to her family through various seemless flashbacks. The audience feel Eva's tangible distress as a mother unable to connect with her distant and aloof son unlike her husband (who succeeds at least on a superficial level). Indeed, there are no easy answers for Eva in her naval gazing look back on her son's early years as she struggles to come to terms with what her son has done and tries to eek out an existence in the same town in the face of almost absolute ostricism from her neighbours and townsfolk. Ezra Miller gives a commendable performance as the disaffected son, Kevin and the director Lynne Ramsay, successfully adds (through the medium of film) another dimension to the best selling book by Lionel Shriver. The Blu Ray contains the full length feature, the main theatrical trailer and some cast interviews. I urge you to watch this compelling drama and suspenseful thriller and to admire the performance of Tilda Swinton at her finest!
