Directed by acclaimed Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, We Need to Talk About Kevin is an adaptation of Lionel Shriver’s novel and stars Tilda Swinton (Burn After Reading), John C. Reilly (Magnolia), Ezra Miller (City Island) and Siobhan Fallon (Forrest Gump).
The mother (Swinton) of a teenage boy (Miller) who went on a high-school killing spree tries to deal with her grief – and feelings of responsibility for her child’s actions – by writing to her estranged husband (Reilly).
We Need to Talk About Kevin will premiere at the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival next month where it will compete for the coveted Palme d’Or.
