New poster for We Need to Talk About Kevin

We Need to Talk About Kevin - Australian poster

Hopscotch Films have unveiled a new Australian poster for We Need to Talk About Kevin, featuring its star Tilda Swinton.

Synopsis: An exquisitely realized adaptation of Lionel Shriver’s bestselling novel, We Need To Talk About Kevin, the film was a critics and audience favourite following its competition screenings at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Tilda Swinton turns in a stunning and breathtakingly fragile performance as Eva, a concerned mother with a troubled, angry son – Kevin. Eva is a haunted middle-aged woman trying to grapple with her own feelings towards her son as he grows up to be a brooding teenager, and his unthinkable actions will shatter her life. What was her role in it? Did she resent her son since birth? What could she have done to help him? We Need To Talk Kevin is directed by visionary filmmaker Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Callar, Ratcatcher), who constructs a mesmerizing, intimate piece of cinema.

Hopscotch adds that they will announce the official Australian release date shortly.
