We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

A British American thriller drama directed by Lynne Ramsay, starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly.
A woman is hated by everyone. She remembers her son growing up, which reveals the reason why she is hated.
Kevin was such an awesome asshole. I couldn't have written him better myself. The plot was VERY British. It was out of sequence and slowly revealed what was going on and why. The characters were written and acted very well. The audio and video were both top-shelf and professionally done. The only problem that I have with this is that the real turning point is never shown or told. We get everything leading up to it and the aftermath, but it's missing that little segment to make it perfect. What exactly happened, how did Eva come to this house and how did it get red stuff all over it? This is a very well-written and produced film, but I think they stopped just short of a complete story. I rate this good. You should probably watch it, but don't go hoping for that "aha!" moment when everything makes sense.
