"We Need to Talk About Kevin" is shocking, captivating, and at times confusing. The entire movie is comprised of snippets of time: past, present and future. The primary way to keep the timing straight is by the length of Eva's (Tilda Swinton) hair. The film is shot through the eyes of Eva, a mother struggling to raise her wicked son, Kevin. She has a husband, Franklin (John C. Reilly), who is clueless to Kevin's behaviors. Franklin thinks his family is normal, and he's always trying to be positive and cheerful. Eva also has a young daughter, Celia.
She's been called "a testament to the power of words to change lives." She's won a long list of awards, including the Lenore Marshall Prize from the Academy of American Poets for her book of poetry, Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah (2012) and was a National Book Award finalist for Blood Dazzler (2008). Now, she's coming to Omaha on Nov. 16th.

A dark comedy about hope and perseverance. A portrayal of a man with a lackluster life, fighting for a purpose.
