'We Need to Talk About Kevin' named Best Film at London Film Festival

We Need to Talk About Kevin, the unflinching mother/son drama about a Columbine-style mass murderer starring Tilda Swinton, was named Best Film at the 55th BFI London Film Festival, besting such Oscar hopefuls as The Artist, The Descendants, and Shame. “In the end, we were simply bowled over by one film, a sublime, uncompromising tale of the torment that can stand in the place of love,” said the jury’s chair, director John Madden (The Debt). “We Need to Talk About Kevin is made with the kind of singular vision that links great directors across all the traditions of cinema.”

We Need to Talk About Kevin, directed by Lynne Ramsay, opens in limited theaters Dec. 9.

    Good, maybe this means the movie is better than the book!

  • Barack Palin

    Please tell me Tilda Swinton doesn’t play Kevin. Although she could very well star in a movie called “We Need to Talk About Conan”.

  • Adwina Lambert

    Let’s Go Androgynous also Tilda! tee-hee!

    The book was one of the hardest I’ve ever read…. the subject matter and tone are so depressing. But also brilliant, I’m interested to see how the movie pans out.
    In the book the character of Kevin’s mother has a dislike for her child, immediately, from infancy. Like she knew what he would grow up to be. That’s not a story often examined in Hollywood

    Yay, so excited for this movie!

  • Barry

    Another limited release for a quality film while trash like the new Chipmunks movie & Happy Feet 2 will flood the multiplexes.

  • Mincha

    Just in time for the holidays…wow. Based on my experience with the book, I think I might just wait for the DVD release.

    where is the rum diary?Robinson has successfully done what many filmmakers can only dream of accomplishing; he’s created a living.and Depp brings his usual talents to the film, completely embodying Kemp.they are a great couple and do the best work. I hope academy notice to this great movie.

    • Jose

      Why mention that film? It looks like crap and reviews seem to support that, meanwhile We Need to Talk about Kevin looks like a masterpiece. I’m hoping the academy AND audience members watch it.

    Sounds like a cheery Christmas flick for the family!

    I made a point of going to see this film but would not recommend it.
    The film is about a nasty young man talking rubbish. Otherwise it’s unrealistic – why would the mother stay in the same area her son had murdered her neigbours?
