the-deep-end-2

Double Feature with WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN (4:30, 9:15)

(2001) dir Scott McGehee, David Siegel w/Tilda Swinton, Goran Višnjić, Jonathan Tucker, Josh Lucas [101 min; 35mm]
A devoted mother (Swinton), believing that her teenage son (Tucker) has murdered his lover (Lucas), goes to great lengths to cover up the “crime” and becomes the victim of a strangely sympathetic blackmailer (Višnjić).

“Swinton … is for once deglamorized into an ordinary woman enlarged by extraordinary circumstances, and the role animates her wonderfully.” – Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly

“A perfect example of a small, well-made, and (in its central role) rivetingly acted film.” – Jay Carr, Boston Globe

“A thrummingly satisfying ’40s-style women’s melodrama cleverly disguised as an art-house picture.” – Stephanie Zachary, Salon.com

“Exquisitely made with a mesmerizing sense of style, it shows the wonderful things that can happen when traditional material is both handled with care and adroitly updated.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
