Note: The following post contains no significant advances of the plot or the end of the film.
The Scottish director Lynne Ramsay makes the adaptation to film We Need To Talk About Kevin eponymous book written by the American Lionel Shriver. It’s natural not to connect with the people, not to rely on them, not believing them, however, when all this is felt by a child things change: Eve struggles to connect with his son Kevin, makes all the efforts of a mother by loving and educate him, but Kevin only gives her rejection and evil natural-born apparently, in these circumstances he grows and becomes a human being difficult to decipher, when Eve discovers the true scope of Kevin, may be too late.
The film has good photography, such, that only with images the story could be understood. The symbology of the color is present all the time, an aspect that gives more character to the scenes. There are various locations that are especially responsible to mark the times: past and present.
The performances are very good Tilda Swinton expresses perfectly the commotion that causes her the relationship with her child, the impotence and frustration of not being in control of the situation. John C. Reilly gives us a role that has already learned: a good and conciliator man that wants to give reason to all, in the meantime Ezra Miller begins to shore up his nascent career with this dense and full of character role.
Zerorojo recommends this family and social horror drama, not only due to the complexity of the story, also because it shows realities that for many of us are not familiar. Perhaps in some way explains the emergence of certain macabre minds that by moments have paralyzed the world with their sinister acts. Has points of reflection: it does not go in vain, the situation that has arisen in the movie certainly can leave the viewers questioning themselves one or two issues…most of all the importance that parents agree on the education of their children.
