No one in my book club is having children after last month’s selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It’s a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it’s not like “Rosemary’s Baby” with a literally evil child: her son Kevin is psychopathic and Eva realizes it, but her husband is completely oblivious. So Kevin grows up, tormenting and terrorizing the people around him, until one day as a teenager he commits a heinous crime that will leave your blood cold. It’s an amazing book that I highly recommend reading. So I can’t wait for the film version in theaters early next year, starring Tilda Swinton as the mom, John C. Reilly as the dad, and Ezra Miller as Kevin. The trailer is absolutely chilling, so I can only imagine how disturbing the actual movie will be. [YouTube]

“It’s scarier to sing than to do nudity. Singing is like really exposing yourself. I was playing sort of a singer, so I was pretending to have a talent I don’t necessarily believe I have. So singing was quite scary.”
– Carey Mulligan tells E! Online that having to sing in her upcoming film “Shame” (directed by Steve McQueen) was more difficult for her to do than going full-frontal, which she also does in the rated NC-17 flick. After the jump, she explains why she decided to bare all. Keep reading »
I read the entire Twilight series in just under a month, and by the time I reached the pivotal scene in which Bella and Edward finally get to make sweet, icy cold, passionate vampire love, I was pretty much ready to explode.
