Kevin is the ultimate scary kid in this haunting evocation of a parent’s worst nightmare – a malevolent, uncontrollable child who turns out very badly indeed. Adapted from Lionel Shriver’s Orange Prize-winning novel about the mother of a boy who went on a killing spree at his high school, Lynne Ramsay’s subtle psychological thriller raises disturbing questions about nature versus nurture. Tilda Swinton is outstanding as Kevin’s anguished mother, while Ramsay’s intriguingly fractured, dream-like narrative conjures up an atmosphere of intense dread.
