Cannes critics speak highly about Tilda Swinton, “Kevin”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Cannes Film Festival is just now getting underway, and already, a film has won over the usually harsh critics and is scoring early praise.

Lynne Ramsey, director of “Ratcatcher” and “Morvern Caller,” has wowed critics with her latest, “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” and most of the praise being directed toward Tilda Swinton, who plays one half of a couple devastated to learn that their son is the gunman in a brutal school shooting. (John C. Reilly is the father.)

Kirk Honeycutt, writing for The Hollywood Reporter, says Swinton “establishes herself as the one to beat for best-actress honors at 2011 Cannes.”

James Rocchi, covering the film for The Playlist, says it is “fascinating, and chilling, and a welcome return for a director who shouldn’t have had to be away for as long as she was.”

Finally, Time Out London, in its perfect 5-stars-out-of-5 review, calls the film “thought-provoking, confident and fearless.”

But enough talk … when will we actually get to see “Kevin?” IMDB says the film has a Sept. 2 release date in the UK, but nothing has been listed for the States. Hopefully the wave of positive buzz can secure an earlier U.S. opening.
