Director Lynne Ramsay (Ratcatcher, Morvern Callar) returns with a disturbing but gorgeously assembled exploration of nurture versus nature. Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, I Am Love) stars as Eva, a mother coming to grips with her monstrous teenage son Kevin (Ezra Miller). John C. Reilly co-stars as Eva's husband.
"Masterfully crafted. There are so many great things happening on almost every level of this movie, from Swinton's haunting, magnetic and tremendously vulnerable performance, which is absolutely free of condescension to the suburban American wife-ness of her character, to the many unsettling individual moments." (Andrew O'Hehir, Salon)
