"Just because you're used to something doesn't mean you like it." Finally, a good trailer for a movie that's going to get a lot of awards season acclaim. The Guardian (via The Film Stage) has debuted the official UK trailer for Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, the indie drama starring Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller. If you haven't heard about this yet, just dive in anyway, this film is so vivid and oddly dark that it's hard to explain. It's adapted from Lionel Shriver's novel about the mother of a very disturbed teen, that's about easiest to explain. It's hard to tell, but she uses red as a motif. Take a look!
Watch the official UK trailer for Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, via The Guardian:

just because it is a dark indie drama doesnt mean it deserves a bunch of awards. cant wait for this fad to be over.

Care to throw out some examples from the last couple of years of dark indie dramas that got a buttload of awards? I mean, if you're talking about film festivals, then you're talking about mostly indie films in the first place. I assume by "awards" you mean "Oscars, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, SAGs" and stuff like that, right?

Wow, was not expecting that to pull me in the way it did. Fascinating. I'm there.

The use of Buddy Holly's "Everyday" was just fantastically creepy and unnerving. I'm definitely looking forward to this one; plus, I'm a big fan of Tilda Swinton.

"... a brilliant adaptation of my novel." Lol, really didn't need that review. Anyways, looks great.

Sounds like a bad day at Gladstone High.

Since I loved Bong Joon-Ho's Mother and Lee Chang-dong's Poetry, I think I'll love this too.
