We Need To Talk About Kevin

2011 | 15 | 109 mins

Tilda Swinton stars as travel writer Eva Katchadourian, whose luxurious lifestyle is interrupted once she becomes pregnant. After her son Kevin is born she struggles to bond with him, and suspects as he matures that he is displaying psychopathic tendencies – but nobody is prepared for the horror of what is soon to follow.

Starring: Tilda Swinton | Ezra Miller | John C. Reilly
Director: Lynne Ramsay
Screenplay: Lynne Ramsay | Rory Stewart Kinnear
Producer: Jennifer Fox | Luc Roeg | Bob Salerno

THEY SAY: “Lynne Ramsay’s thoughtful, unnerving film works its strange power over viewers who are likely to find themselves as compelled as repelled by its fatally flawed key players.” – Ann Hornoday, Washington Post, 2012

WE SAY: The book stunned readers upon its release, and this masterful adaptation captures all of the drama and psychological horror of the novel. A deeply unsettling watch that poses some uncomfortable questions on the nature of humanity, and the lack of it.



  • Our stewards reserve the right to refuse entry to those who they believe to be under the appropriate age for each film’s BBFC certification who cannot produce photographic ID. Refunds will not be issued if somebody who fails to produce ID is subsequently refused entry to the venue. Please bear in mind that the Caves are an intense environment and may not be suitable for younger children, even if the film is PG rated – parental discretion is advised.
  • Due to the cave’s status as a protected environment, no food is permitted into the venue. Drinks will only be permitted into the venue in plastic containers. Personal alcohol supplies may not be brought into the Caves; the onsite bar will be selling several ales from the Wickwar Wessex range. Please bring ID as our stewards will operate a Challenge 25 policy.
  • Please be aware that drunken or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in the caves. If an individual appears to be under the influence of alcohol, or is acting in a manner deemed inappropriate by our staff, they may be removed from the venue.
  • It is advisable to wear warm, weather-appropriate clothing in the caves as well as sturdy, appropriate footwear. The caves can be cold, particularly at night, and are uneven underfoot in places. Seating is provided, but guests are welcome to bring additional cushions and blankets if they wish, although it is worth noting that they may get dusty!
  • Please follow the instructions of onsite stewards at all times, and remain on the clearly designated paths. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the premises. In the case of an emergency, the event stewards are fully briefed and will instruct you on the necessary actions to take.
