Hidden-Review-of-the-Day! Honey Kevin's crazy, no he's fine, your crazy!

Great overall acting makes this film so believable it's scary!
     Movies that really bring a lot of tension don't come along often. It's either ruined with bad acting, or terrible pacing from the movie. "We Need to Talk About Kevin" though is a gripping, frustrating, and strong film that really puts you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next scene to show how nuts this family's problems really are.

      "We Need to Talk About Kevin" is based on a book by Lionel Shriver, about a married couple, Eva and Franklin, who are deciding whether or not to have a baby. Time is short for them as they are pushing their forties, and Eva decides to have the baby, really for the wrong reasons though. As Eva holds Kevin for the first time, she can sense a cold and distant vibe from him and as he grows up he becomes very hostile of her.

The movie does a great job with relating to the book.
As he grows older he's thrown in jail for his crazy actions and throughout the film you get to watch Tilda Swinton's Character, Eva go into a spiral breakdown of the terrible things that her son is doing. All the while, Franklin, played by John C. Reilly, is completely oblivious to this and ignores her cries as their marriage begins to break. 

     Today's Hidden-Review consists of two different reviews actually. One on Slate, written by Dana Stevens (here) which explains the movie and the tension that lies between Kevin and his mother. While the other, is of the original book by kaseryxrd on YouTube.

     It's a gripping film that I'm sure will be enjoyed and remembered for a long time. If this sounds like your type of film then this is a must see, if none of this peaks your interest, it not a must see so don't feel too bad for missing this one. The book is also good so if your a read then watch type of person, then go check out "We Need to Talk About Kevin"!
