We Need to Talk About Kevin Gets U.S. Release Date

Posted February 21, 2012 05:02 AM by Webmaster

Oscilloscope PicturesIndependent distributors Oscilloscope Pictures have announced that they are preparing a Blu-ray release of acclaimed Scottish director Lynne Ramsay's (Ratcatcher, Morvern Callar) We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), starring John C. Reilly, Tilda Swinton, and Ezra Miller. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is May 29th.

A suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin explores the fractious relationship between a mother and her evil son. Tilda Swinton, in a bracing, tour-de-force performance, plays the mother, Eva, as she contends for 15 years with the increasing malevolence of her first-born child, Kevin (Ezra Miller).

Note: On May 19th, Oscilloscope Pictures will also release on DVD Antony Cordier's Happy Few a.k.a Four Lovers (2010), starring Marina Fo´s, ╔lodie Bouchez and Roschdy Zem.

Good, but flawed film. In the hands of a better director it could have really gone somewhere.

We Need to Talk About Kevin is easily one of the honorable films on my list. Low key in its own special way, well-written and -crafted and especially well-acted. Ezra Miller's performance is quite strong and I had hoped Tilda Swinton would receive an Academy Award nod. I actually thought Lynne Ramsay did a fine directing job.

May, to some, may seem far away, but it'll be here sooner than you think and I'm sure Oscilloscope will do a nice job on the a.v. quality and present it in some interesting packaging. This is an easy and anticipated preorder.

This is the third best film of 2011, after Skin I Live In and Melancholia. Tilda's not being nominated for Best Actress this year is one of the most disgraceful snubs in Oscar history.

This movie was so intense. And not easy to sit through at times. Deeply disturbing. Kevin is one biggest monsters to ever grace the screen (and books).

I'm going to stick up for scarface16. Despite being well acted all around, I grew tired of the characters and found myself not caring what happened. The non linear storytelling didn't work for me this time. I felt like I knew enough well before the film ended. I'm good with being in the minority on this one. I was hoping to feel more for the mother, but I felt like she was too much of a victim.

This looks like a nail biter, but it's really not my kind of movie. Swinton is an amazing actor but Reilly is a puzzling choice.

@Boothill A number of things: For one, it was camp posing as art. I went in expecting to be disturb or impressed by it in some way and I just couldn't get over the sheer level of camp! And there was absolutely nothing subtle about the film at all. I mean at one point Swinton is actually pushing the Rosemary's Baby stroller! Ramsay just couldn't stop hammering home the theme of RED. At one point Swinton is literally washing the red paint off her hands, get it? It's supposed to be like blood (very subtle). Also, the non-chronological storytelling added nothing to the film. And *spoiler alert* the fact that we're supposed to believe that he's a master archer with phenomenal accuracy just because we get a few scenes of him as a child practicing with a bow and arrow is just ridiculous. The whole thing was just so contrived and meaningless. Not to mention that obviously ironic and cute soundtrack! And let's not even talk about how miscast John C. Riley was.... Swinton & Miller, however, did the best they could with what they were given.

A day 1 sale for me. No doubt. That Tilda was snubbed by the Academy is a goddamn shame.
