Oscilloscope opening Tilda Swinton’s “Kevin” earlier – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Tilda Swinton has been generating a surprising amount of awards heat for her performance as an overwhelmed mother in Lynne Ramsay’s “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” I say “surprising” because the unpleasantness of Swinton’s character – a disinterested parent who may or may not be a contributor to her son’s evil disposition – should be turning off critics and award voters. Instead, thankfully, they are embracing the depth of Swinton’s performance, chilly as it may be.

And so Oscilloscope Laboratories, sensing the momentum shift, has moved up the New York theatrical release by a few days. The studio now says that “Kevin” will open at the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and Angelika Film Center in New York on Friday, Jan. 13, 2012 and at the Arclight Hollywood Theater in Los Angeles on Friday, Jan. 20, 2012.

“We had an amazing one-week qualifying run in December where the film’s attendance exceeded even our highest expectations. The reviews were stellar and the word of mouth is only growing. It’s an intense psychological thriller that audiences feel the need to talk about afterwards. By definition this is an ideal ‘Word of Mouth’ film,” said David Fenkel, President of Oscilloscope Laboratories. “Theaters are excited to have a quality arthouse genre film to bring in younger audiences”

Oscilloscope compiled a helpful list of awards “Kevin” has collected over the course of the ongoing Oscar season. I’m posting them below. It’s also worth noting that the Oscar experts over at Gold Derby have Swinton in the fifth slot for the Best Actress Oscar nominations.

Here’s our review of “Kevin” from the Toronto International Film Festival, as well as our conversation with Swinton.
