Studio Theatre

Short Cuts Cinema screens We Need to Talk About Kevin (Lynne Ramsey, 2011) on Wednesday 7th March (new date) at 7.30pm in the Studio Theatre

We Need to Talk About Kevin is a 2003 novel about a fictional school massacre. It is written from the perspective of the killer’s mother, Eva Khatchadourian, and documents her attempt to come to terms with her son Kevin, and the murders he committed.

What happens when bad children happen to good parents? Does it mean they are not, in fact, as good as they had imagined themselves to be? Although told in the first person as a series of letters from Eva to her husband, the novel’s structure also strongly resembles that of a thriller. The novel, Lionel Shriver’s seventh, won the 2005 Orange Prize, a UK-based prize for female authors of any nationality writing in English.
