Tilda Swinton earned rave reviews - leaving many surprised she didn't score an Oscar nomination, though she was up for a Golden Globe Award - for director Lynne Ramsay's searing drama.
Based on Lionel Shriver's novel, it's about an increasingly dangerous teenager (Ezra Miller) and the effect he has on his parents (Swinton, John C. Reilly) ... and, ultimately and shockingly, their entire community once his mother's worst fears come true. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
