WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN ( MA) ★★★★ ■
Stars: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly
Available: Now on DVD and BD When it comes to movies, it’s hard work putting scares into parents. But if this horror family drama doesn’t give mums and dads the heebiejeebies, nothing will. A very bleak and often unnerving piece, it follows a traumatised mother who is looking back over her life and relationship with her difficult son after he commits an unspeakable act. She is trying desperately to function in the aftermath. The heavyhanded direction can jolt you out of it at times but, for the most part, this is thoroughly compelling and wonderfully carried by Tilda Swinton.
