Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin," with Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly is undoubtedly one of our most anticipated films of the Cannes Film Festival and these snippets from the film are even better than we could have expected.

Dug up by Flix, what we get are three peeks at the film that are nerve-wracking and bone-chilling. The first film in nearly a decade from Ramsay, the story is an adaptation of the acclaimed bestseller by Lionel Shriver, about a mother (Swinton) and father (John C. Reilly) whose teenage son is the perpetrator of a high school massacre. The first clip seems to show Kevin as a baby, with Swinton's character desperately trying to find some relief from his crying, and in turn conveying her own frustrations as a young mother. The second clip, presumably after the horrific incident, displays Swinton seemingly in a depths of depression. But it's the third clip that knocks it out of the park, with the teenaged Kevin very acutely pushing the buttons of his parents while peeling a lychee with an almost devilish glee.

Yeah, might as well put this up as a major festival contender right now. Check 'em out below.
