112 mins – United Kingdom / United States 2011 – Dir: Lynne Ramsay
Starring: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller
Eva and her son Kevin have had a difficult relationship from when he was a child, but when he does something irrational and unforgivable, how much of what Kevin did was her fault? The short film Kill The Day (1996, 19 minutes) will be shown before We Need To Talk About Kevin.
There will be a post-screening discussion with Sarah Cleary, who was awarded her PhD by Trinity College Dublin in 2016 and has dedicated her studies to the pursuit of exploring the juxtaposition between children, the media and the alleged effects of horror on children. She has published on a wide variety of horror and pop culture subjects concentrating on areas concerning censorship, popular culture and child-centric controversies in the mass media.
Splitting her time between lecturing in Trinity in Popular Culture and working in the field of event management as a senior level
