Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly, and Ezra Miller star in Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, a harrowing story of a mother reeling from a son's unthinkable violence. "Ramsay, filming in lurid reds and unblinking close-ups, lets no one off the hook here," wrote Moira MacDonald. "This is truly a domestic horror story, with no easy answers and nobody blameless." Adapted from the novel by Lionel Shriver, much of this 2011 psychological thriller was filmed nearby in Stamford, CT. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
