"He's just a sweet little boy." Oscilloscope Labs has debuted the official US trailer in high def via Apple for Lynne Ramsay's highly acclaimed new film We Need to Talk About Kevin, starring Tilda Swinton as the mother of a deranged boy, played by Ezra Miller (at his oldest point). John C. Reilly also stars in this chilling drama about the parents of a boy who goes on a high school killing. It's one of the darkest and depressing experiences of the year, but is stunning well-made. This is perfect for Halloween, not only with some Halloween footage/imagery tossed in, but also the eerie, unsettling feeling this trailer has. Must see!

It looks like a bizarre but good movie.

Looks good, but weird that the trailer doesn't even touch upon the "high school killing aspect" whereas the description of the movie says its about how the mother deals with what her son has done. Is the plot synopsis a big spoiler, or is the trailer misleading?

the act itself is important but not exactly the central point or anything. I know the UK ad campaign has really capitalized on sensationalizing the violent aspects of it and the horror elements but I think Oscilloscope's publicity is much more Ramsay-approved and artful.

I also don't think people would want to see a movie marketed with such a dark premise. It does look awesome though. How about those colors?

mike - the point of the movie is NOT to show gratuitous violence. the point is made that the boy did this terrible thing and the mother is reflecting on the lives of the family up to that point - it's about her and the guilt she's feeling over whether or not she could have done things differently to prevent her son from ending up killing people.

It doesn't show or "touch upon" the killing aspect because its not about the killings, it is about the aftermath and what grief the mother feels. It is sort of like how Contagion didn't show a lot of gross disturbing people falling apart. Contagion was about how the world would actually deal with a epidemic of that category. I am excited to see another film this year that isn't about all the blood and action and disturbing shots, but rather about the emotional aspect of what the horrific actions that occurred caused.
