We Need to Talk about Kevin - clip: Responsible
NZ RELEASE DATE: March 1, 2012 OFFICIAL BLOG: http://weneedtotalkaboutkevin.wordpress.com/ OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://www.hopscotchfilms.com.au/films/coming-soon/weneedtotalkaboutkevin-thefilm/ An exquisitely realized adaptation of Lionel Shriver's bestselling novel, We Need To Talk About Kevin, the film was a critics and audience favourite following its competition screenings at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Tilda Swinton turns in a stunning and breathtakingly fragile performance as Eva, a concerned mother with a troubled, angry son - Kevin. Eva is a haunted middle-aged woman trying to grapple with her own feelings towards her son as he grows up to be a brooding teenager, and his unthinkable actions will shatter her life. What was her role in it? Did she resent her son since birth? What could she have done to help him? This is a fearless film that will provoke and enthral audiences in equal measure, raising questions of guilt, regret and loss. At the heart of the story is an eerie portrait of the idea of nature vs nurture, and a bold look at the alienation of parenthood. Chilling but absolutely captivating, We Need To Talk Kevin is directed by visionary filmmaker Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Callar, Ratcatcher), who constructs a mesmerizing, intimate piece of cinema.
