It seems the team behind Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" has been pushing their film harder than anyone else on the Croisette in terms of advance footage, but it's clear to see why. The premise isn't an easily sellable one, telling the story of a mother (Tilda Swinton) of a teenage boy who went on a high-school killing spree as she tries to deal with her grief—and feelings of responsibility for her child’s actions. Heavy stuff indeed. But as the clips from earlier in the week and the new one today reveal -- this film is looking like both an acting decathlon and wiry drama of the highest order.

The Fox Searchlight marketing department seems to be embracing the web with more enthusiasm this year than they have in the past. Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" has an official Fox Searchlight page, a Tumblr and its own detailed standalone site. Clearly, it's helped push the arthouse film in the minds of more mainstream moviegoers and it looks like the studio is taking the same tack with Alexander Payne's upcoming "The Descendants."

While the Weinsteins are no strangers to picking up movies that are tough to market, they've really outdone themselves this time. But we have to applaud the distributors for taking on a film that frankly, not many would take a chance on.
