Tilda Swinton in the unsettling drama We Need to Talk About Kevin

The always splendid Tilda Swinton plays the role of a mother who fears her son is growing up to be a psychopath in this unsettling, well-paced drama. Since we don't want to be spoilers, suffice to say a horrid incident involving her malevolent son Kevin causes Swinton's character to live a strange and anguished life. The movie takes us back to Kevin's early childhood, to illuminate the events that led up to his violent grand gesture. Swinton is joined by a well-cast Ezra Miller (whom you may recognize from “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) as teenage Kevin along with John C. Reilly as the hapless, buffoonish dad.
