We haven’t gotten a domestic trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk about Kevin but hopefully it will share the same creepiness as the one that’s hit the UK. Bookended by Buddy Holly’s “Everyday”, the movie shows that Kevin (Ezra Miller) really, really, really doesn’t like his mother (Tilda Swinton) and the feeling may be mutual. However, the plot centers around Kevin going on a shooting spree at his school. When teenagers go on shoot up their schools in real life, it seems that the parents were unaware of the child’s dark side beyond saying their kid was “withdrawn” and/or “sullen” (sometimes they seemed perfectly happy). In this movie, it looks like Kevin may as well walk around with a t-shirt that reads “I am going to do something horrible.” I would be nervous about the flick but the strong buzz coming out of Cannes (especially for Swinton’s performance) has me interested.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. We Need to Talk about Kevin opens December 2nd.
