Of course, I had to see it.
And it was riveting.
Tilda Swinton is superb. That's the Oscar for Best Actress sorted. It seems ages since I read the book but the film struck me as considerably more chilling.
Kevin is a malevolent devil-child. But you knew that already. Don't they have boarding schools in America?
But sometimes you have to laugh. Look at this.

Oh Good lord. I'm not familiar with the book -looks like something I really don't want to read. Shallow person that I am I'd rather see the new Bond.

I read the book for a book-group, Sue, and I must say it was a real page-turner. But I have been known to nod off in Bond movies.

There are boarding schools but it's cheaper for parents with kids like this to simply drop them off at the library where I work and leave.

My goodness, Mary, this movie looks chilling.

Better than the book, I thought, Darlene, because she's such a brilliant actress. You can see it all etched on her face.
