A Mediocre Film
So this is another book to film adaptation. Considering I haven't read the book I cannot compare them (although I do plan on reading it eventually). The film was alright. I think Ezra Miller and Tilda Swinton were phenomenal in their roles but I think it seemed typical to cast Tilda as the role, it just seemed 'her' to me. It dragged on far too much, not really going anywhere. Being a teenage girl I definitely cried at the end, which I think was the best part.    All in …

**** out of ****    The first shot in Lynne Ramsay's "We Need to Talk About Kevin" is of an open window. What lies beyond that window shocked me more than anything I have seen so far this year and last in the movies. It isn't something that I find offensive; but something cold, inhuman, and indecent. That's not going to sit well with a lot of people, and without spoiling what "it" is, I will say that Ramsay is a brave and talented director for not only showing what she had to …

A stunning film
Eva (Tilda Swinton) is a wife and mother who has just experienced the last in a series of shattering incidents. In flashbacks, we see her happy life change forever with the birth of her unusual son. From that first day, she never feels any bond with him while he seems equally detached from and even hateful toward her.      This is an incredibly intense and heartbreaking film, dealing with the problem of alienation, the nature of familial love, and unspeakable violence. All of …

Star Rating:         Are monsters born, or are they made? It’s obvious that Eva (Tilda Swinton) was ambivalent about her pregnancy, and by the time her son Kevin was born, she realized that having a child was never something she wanted. Throughout all stages of Kevin’s life, we see just how aware he is of his mother’s indifference, and how he uses it against her. As a baby, he cries incessantly. As a toddler, he develops slowly, not learning how to …

'We Need To Talk About Kevin' 'Two Jews On Film' Agree & Disagree About This Powerful Drama (Video)
            By Joan Alperin Schwartz      What would you do if you suspected that your six year old son was an evil sociopath?  (Are there any other kind?) I know what I would do...Lock him away and throw away the key.       Unfortunately, this is not what Eva Khatchadourian (Tilda Swinton) in 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' does.  In fact,  Eva does absolutely nothing …

Caption
Adapted from the novel by Lionel Shriver, “We Need to Talk about Kevin” is a horrifying look at a mother’s heartbreaking experience as her son goes on to commit a massacre at his school.      Are parents somewhat responsible when they see the warning signs of the makings of a homicidal behavior and yet fail to address such things? Are monsters born or are they made? This film engages the viewer into the depths of a mother’s guilt as well as her own descent …

Brilliant Conversation
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN Written by Lynne Ramsay and Rory Kinnear Directed by Lynne Ramsay Starring Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilley and Ezra Miller   Dr. Foulkes: He’s a floppy little boy, isn’t he? But there’s nothing wrong with him.   I know we’re supposed to talk about him but I have a very hard time talking about WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN. (I meant to write this review three weeks ago and just couldn’t do it until now.) From the moment it opens, …
