We Need to Talk About Kevin French Trailer: The Bad Seed

We Need to Talk About Kevin set everyone abuzz at Cannes: Would you expect anything less from a tense, visually arresting film starring Tilda Swinton as the mother of a teenage sociopath? Swinton (in a variety of haircuts!) and John C. Reilly play the parents of the violent, very creepy Kevin, and even over the course of this short international trailer, their frustration and horror — and denial — come through. Sure, Kevin's series of Damien-ish moppets look a little on the vacant side, but it would be hard for anyone to match Swinton's onscreen magnetism.
