Tilda Swinton - Tilda Swinton To Win Oscar For 'Kevin'?

Tilda Swinton, the American actress best known for her role in 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', is already gaining rave reviews for her gritty performance in the drama 'We Need To Talk About Kevin', which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival today (12th May 2011). Tilda Swinton plays a grief stricken mother in Lynne Ramsay's new movie.
Swinton's performance in the highly anticipated drama is being lauded by critics. The New York Post are talking up the actress' Oscar chances for 2012, saying, "Apologies to Meryl Streep, Rooney Mara, Charlize Theron and every other supposed frontrunner for the 2012 Best Actress Academy Award because Tilda Swinton is barely going to break a sweat kicking all your asses". The film, which also stars John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller, is based on the best-selling novel by Lionel Shriver. The story follows mother 'Eva Khatchadourian' as she attempts to come to terms with the murders that her son has committed in a school massacre. After Woody Allen's light-hearted romantic-comedy 'Midnight In Paris' opened the Film Festival yesterday, 'Kevin', "jolted critics with its stark, unflinching portrayal of a mother-son relationship defined not by love but cruelty and mutual hatred", according to Reuters.
Tilda Swinton is currently filming Wes Anderson's new film 'Moonrise Kingdom', set for release in 2012. The movie follows a pair of lovers as they flee their New England home town, causing a local search party to set out after them.
