DVD: We Need to Talk About Kevin, For retail & rental (Artificial Eye)


Lynne Ramsay's bold adaptation of Lionel Shriver's 2003 novel was the most powerful British film of 2011.

The nightmarish story of a mother (Tilda Swinton) who can't stand her son (played as a reptilian teenager by Ezra Miller), it's gorgeous to look at, and bursting with playful symbolism. And yet the drama is so tense, and Kevin so poisonous, that you'll be holding your breath, desperate for it to end.
