Tilda Swinton plays Eva, a mother with a contentious relationship with her son in the movie We Need to Talk About Kevin. She’s something of an ambivalent mother and her relationship with her son hasn’t been rocky almost since birth.
Now, the boy is 15-years-old. Kevin commits a heinous act, leaving Eva to grapple with her own grief and feelings of responsibility. She also must deal with the ire of the community. Early rumblings have Swinton giving one of the best performances of her career.
We Need to Talk About Kevin will have a limited release on December 9.
