Last week, the HOME.corp team went on a cinema outing to see We Need To Talk About Kevin at the Curzon is Soho. None of us had read Lionel Shriver's book (Katy tried but gave up), but we'd been told to expect a fairly hard-hitting affair. 

Whilst we all agreed that Brit filmmaker Lynne Ramsay did an excellent job of adapting such a poignant & difficult story (which put most of us off ever having children), the direction felt a little contrived at times; needlessly concerning itself with an overly-studied aesthetic (see picture above) and a sometimes painfully staggered narrative flow. 

None the less, it was very much worth seeing; if anything for Tilda Swinton's performance, which was, as ever, captivating. Check out the trailer below.
