The stars of We Need To Talk About Kevin talk to us at the London Film Festival...
At the London Film Festival we catch up with the team behind We Need To Talk About Kevin. Speaking to director Lynne Ramsay and script writer Rory Kinnear we learn how they adapted a novel with such a troubling subject matter, and how they're feeling about the rave reviews.
Author, Lionel Shriver was present too and confessed how frighteningly well Ezra Miller portrayed the lead character of Kevin in the adaptation.
We also spoke to Christine Langan who talked about her role as the head of BBC Films and revealed some details about BBC’s upcoming film projects.
A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay's We Need To Talk About Kevin explores the fractious relationship between a mother and her evil 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).
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, 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. Ramsay's masterful storytelling simultaneously combines a provocative moral ambiguity with a satisfying and compelling narrative, which builds to a chilling, unforgettable climax.
