Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' [Movies]
Print this page

Children can be evil. Oh, they can be wonderful and adorable, too, but let’s face it: they can be pretty rough to deal with. From tantrums and screaming during the toddler years to bullying and hazing during adolescence (and, for the immature, well into adulthood), it’s no wonder that our youth are stereotypically treated with distrust and disgust by older members of our race. But really, these kids aren’t evil… they’re just kids who have yet to grow up. Usually.

Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents a limited run of the highly anticipated film “We Need to Talk About Kevin” – Kevin, who is in prison for massacring students at his high school. The film operates in flashbacks as Kevin’s mother reflects on his life growing up, the difficulties she had raising him, and the events that lead to the school shooting.

To watch the trailer, one gets the impression that this is yet another demonic-child horror film, a la “The Omen” or “Orphan.” (Stop doing this, Hollywood – word on the street is that you are slated to ruin the fantastic “Akira” by remaking it with this hackneyed formula [Hollywood reads my articles, right?].) However, the buzz is that this is something special and original, featuring fantastic direction from Lynne Ramsay (“Ratcatcher,” “Morvern Callar”) and stunning performances by Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly; movie blogs during Oscars season were in up-in-arms at this film’s complete lack of nominations. Apparently this is one to see.

“We Need to Talk About Kevin” plays at Village 8 until next Thursday, March 29. Village 8 Theater is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
