“Just because you’re used to something doesn’t mean you like it. You’re used to me.” That statement pretty much says it all about the relationship between Kevin (Ezra Miller) and his mother (Tilda Swinton) as they come sharply into focus in the new, chilling trailer for Lynne Ramsay‘s highly anticipated “We Need To Talk About Kevin.”
Debuted over the weekend by the Guardian, this spot begins with lots of (bloody looking) red contrasted by the gently sweet strains of “Everyday” by Buddy Holly before Kevin himself takes over, narrating his desire to rise above what he views as the mundane lives of everyone else. And to do so, he will commit a horrifying act that will forever mark the life of his mother and everyone else around her. We probably don’t need to remind you the film was a sensation in Cannes, with Swinton once again picking up very strong notices for her performance and it seems that Lynne Ramsay is back from the moviemaking wilderness with a vengeance.
Oscilloscope Laboratories will release the film on December 2nd. Check out the trailer below.
