It has been almost a decade since Lynne Ramsay's "Morvern Callar," and while some of that time was spent on an adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" that was scuttled (with Peter Jackson later delivering his take on the material to theaters), we're glad she's finally back. Next month she'll hit Cannes with "We Need To Talk About Kevin" another tough drama that promises to be a doozy.

It has been almost a decade since Lynne Ramsay's "Morvern Callar," and while some of that time was spent on an adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" that was scuttled (with Peter Jackson later delivering his take on the material to theaters), we're glad she's finally back. Next month she'll hit Cannes with "We Need To Talk About Kevin" another tough drama that promises to be a doozy.

Starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly, the film tells the story of a mother (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—by writing to her estranged husband (Reilly). Septimovicio has revealed the first images from the film and it certainly transmits the chilling and somber tone the material likely has. And not only does the film look like tour-de-force stuff for Swinton, she'll be backed by a score from Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood.

The Cannes Film Festival begins on May 11th and "We Need To Talk About Kevin" will play in competition. Check out more images below.
