No Man’s Land: We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

Hoezo in Kino

Maverick director Lynne Ramsay has a phenomenal body of work but her 2011 adaptation of the “unfilmable” bestseller might be her most powerful. This dark – and darkly funny – exploration of Nature vs Nurture is set in an arena of splendorous primary colours, where the battle of wills between mother and son (played with poise by Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller) comes to a gut-wrenching conclusion.

A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk About Kevin explores the factious relationship between a mother and her son. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 15 years with the increasing malevolence of her first-born child, Kevin (Ezra Miller).
