Pink Julep Flicks: We Need to Talk About Kevin
As one might expect with a Tilda Swinton film, We Need to Talk About Kevin starts out very slow. It's borderline boring, but there's something about it - like a car accident - that keeps you looking because from the beginning, you know something is going to happen.
Also starring John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller, We Need to Talk About Kevin is the story of a mother who can't relate to her child, to the point where he absolutely hates and tortures her. The end result is disturbing at best. It asks the question: Will you love your child no matter what? It's moving, horrific and very thought-provoking. I highly recommend this film, but be warned... It's not a happy one. Bring a tissue!
