We Need to Talk About Kevin (Ramsay '11)
Following her brilliant debut Ratcatcher and the under-appreciated Morvern Callar, Lynne Ramsay is finally back with the big screen adaptation of the Lionel Shriver's award-winning back of the same title.
This is a story about parenting, growing up, guilt, and not a very nice child... But what we really need to talk about are Tilda and Lynne. Obviously after coming to Roxy last September to introduce a film as part of the Scala Forever season, Tilda is our number 1 favourite actress, but this is another stellar performance as the mother of Kevin and the pain, anguish and guilt she goes through.
Behind the camera, Ramsay delivers another bold, dramatic performance in directing a tremendously good adaptation of the novel. This is stylish, chilling, thought-provoking filmmaking and definitely one of our films of the year already. Do not miss!
