The trailer for Lynne Ramsay's latest, We Need to Talk About Kevin, has debuted at iTunes Movie Trailers and you can check it out in the player below.
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. The film 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.
