From Library Staff
Tilda Swinton gives a mesmerizing performance about a mother who comes to realize that something is terribly wrong with her son.
From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: A disturbing look at a devious child who paves a destructive path and only wishes to hurt people, driving his mother around the bend in the process. These acts are all premeditated and intentionally cruel.The list is too long and perverse. It's very haunting. Not recommended for children or even teens. For adults with strong morals who can handle depravity.
Sexual Content: There are three or four moments of sexual content displayed, but under covers or behind doors or in ways that the actual act and any nudity is obscured. There are also a few instances of inappropriate sexually suggestive language.
Violence: This film contains mild violence, but implications of more major violence.

Eva (to toddler Kevin): "Mommy was happy before widdle Kevin came along, did you know dat? Now Mommy wakes up every morning, and wishes SHE WAS IN FRANCE!"
(Eva wakes to a video of Kevin on TV) Kevin: "It's like this: You wake up, and watch TV... Get in your car, and listen to the radio... You go to your little job, or your little school, but you're not gonna hear about that on the six o'clock news... Why? 'Cause nothing is really happening. And you go home and watch some more TV, or maybe, it's a fun night, you go out, and watch a movie. I mean it's got so bad that half the people on TV, inside the TV, they're watching TV. And what are all these people watching? (sneering) ...People like me... And what are all you doing right now... but watching me? You don't think they would have changed the channel by now if all I did was get an 'A' in geometry?" (he snickers)
(Kevin overhears his parents talking about separating, and custody of the children) Franklin: "Hey, Kev. Listen buddy, it's easy to misunderstand something when you hear it out of context." Kevin: "Why would I not understand the context? I AM the context."
