We Need To Talk About Kevin

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: What would you do if you suspected that your six year old son was an evil sociopath?  (Are there any other kind?) I know what I would do...Lock him away and throw away the key.

Unfortunately, this is not what Eva Khatchadourian (Tilda Swinton) in 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' does.  In fact, Eva does absolutely nothing and that's a decision that will haunt her until the day she dies.

I have to say that watching this intensely disturbing film, directed by Lynne Ramsey and based on a novel by Lionel Shriver, I found myself growing more and more frustrated and more and more angry with Miss Eva.  I wanted to scream at her...Lady, your child needs help...How can you not see that!?!
