Much like We Need To Talk About Kevin, this film focuses on the family of the pereptrator of a college shooting. The son is only in the film for a very short period. This was probably the most dull of the films we watched, in terms of its relation to the genre. The focus was more on the couple’s ability to cope with what their son had done and how it affected their marriage and relationship. I was left with the question of ‘but why did he do it?’, as this is frutratingly not explained at all in the film. However, in the context of this film I think that the how and why didn’t matter. The boy in this film made me feel incredibly sad, possibly because he didn’t appear to have as much anger and hate inside him as the other males in these films, only loss and despair.
