A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, this film explores the complex and difficult relationship between a mother and her son. Tilda Swinton, in a tour-de-force, Golden Globe-nominated performance, plays a mother contending with the increasing malevolence of her first-born child, Kevin. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, this film explores the question of nature versus nurture in new ways, as Eva's culpability is measured against Kevin's criminal behavior. Ramsay's masterful storytelling simultaneously combines a provocative moral ambiguity with compelling narrative, and builds to a chilling, unforgettable climax.
Acting doesn't get much better than the subtly brilliant display put on by Tilda Swinton. - Rolling Stone
