Trailer: We Need To Talk About Kevin

Below you can watch the (albeit French) trailer for the Lynne Ramsay directed adaption of the Lionel Shriver novel from 2003, with music scored by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. Whoever designed the poster, has clearly seen Rosemary’s Baby.

The plot follows a mother’s (Tilda Swinton) recount of the events leading up to, and following, her son’s massacre of students and teachers at his high school. The first theme absolutely screams Yann Tiersen, whilst the dissonant second is far more reminiscent of Greenwood’s style and the film’s creepy undertones.

In the meantime, have a listen to this rhythmically fingerpicked beauty from Jonny’s last cinematic effort, Norwegian Wood.
