Watch Intense Clip from Cannes Entry We Need to Talk About Kevin

Working from home has its downsides: like that crying baby upstairs, or that impromptu construction site outside. Which is what makes this new clip from the Lynne Ramsay-directed We Need to Talk About Kevin so unsettling. Well, that and the knowledge that Lynne Ramsay's film is about two estranged parents dealing with the aftermath of their teenage son going on a killing spree at his high school. Click ahead to watch.

Yikes. Also: Let's just put Tilda Swinton on top of the Best Actress race for 2011. Sorry, Meryl!

We Need to Talk About Kevin debuts at the Cannes Film Festival, and will premiere stateside later this year.

    Looking at that pic of Tilda Swinton, my first thought was 'Edward Furlong is back on meth again'.

  • Christopher Rosen says:

    Or an older Ginnifer Goodwin.

  • Matt says:

    Sounds a lot like Beautiful Boy, no?

  • TAL says:

    "We need to talk about Kevin" was an unsettling book too. Is it weird to say that i'm excited to see this downer? Anything Swinton.

    That's just what I thought. Talk about competing projects.
    "Estranged parents dealing with tragedy after finding out their son has gone on a killing spree at his school. Featuring amazing nuanced performances from talented actors in the parent's roles."
    Hmm. Which film does that describe?
