We Need to Talk About Kevin

Tuesday 7th February 20127:00 PM

The mother of a teenage boy who went on a high-school killing spree tries to deal with her grief -- and feelings of responsibility for her child's actions. Adapted from the novel of the same name, it captures Eva Khatchadourian's struggle to come to terms with her estranged son's personality, as she looks back on her life. A once successful travel-writer, Eva now lives in a run-down house and works in mall travel agency close to the prison where she goes to visit her son Kevin. Her memories are shown in flashbacks. Through them, we come to learn that her child is a psychopath that no one, not her or her husband, seemed to know how to control.
