'We Need to Talk About Kevin' review - Tilda Swinton tries her hardest to raise a sociopath

I am not a parent, and after seeing We Need to Talk About Kevin, I think I may hold off on the whole children thing for a while. Lynne Ramsey’s new film is simultaneously chilling and thrilling.

Or did she maybe cause his problems by treating him like he was a monster? I’m very intrigued by this trailer, which manages to grab interest without ruining the plot.
