Rhyming Review For ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’

In ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’, the character of Kevin does something bad

It changes his life and his family’s life and makes his mother very, very sad

The events of the story are told through flashbacks and are pieced together bit by bit

It’s a technique that is frustrating to watch at times and might make you want to quit

Kevin is an odd little kid and acts very strange from the time when he’s a little boy

As a teen, when things go bad, it can be linked back to something he got as a toy

He seems to really dislike his mother and he seemingly torments her just for fun

However, when his dad is around he acts fine and appears to be a pretty good son

In the present day the mom is alone and treated roughly by people in town

She remembers through those flashbacks how her life gets turned upside down

Tilda Swinton is excellent as the mom and portrays her in a way that only she could

John C. Reilly plays the dad and Ezra Miller plays the teenage Kevin and both are good

The subjects of parenting, grief and responsibility are covered in a very tough way

It’s an intense film and, if you can handle the rough themes, it’s worth a look I say
