Plot Summary: A suspenseful and psychologically gripping exploration into a parent dealing with her child doing the unthinkable, "We Need to Talk About Kevin" is told from the perspective of Eva, played by Tilda Swinton in a tour-de-force performance.

Always an ambivalent mother, Eva and Kevin have had a contentious relationship literally from Kevin's birth. Kevin (Ezra Miller), now 15-years-old, escalates the stakes when he commits a heinous act, leaving Eva to grapple with her feelings of grief and responsibility, as well as the ire of the community-at-large. "We Need to Talk About Kevin" explores nature vs. nurture on a whole new level as Eva's own culpability is measured against Kevin's innate evilness, while Ramsay's masterful storytelling leaves enough moral ambiguity to keep the debate going.
