We Need to Talk About Kevin won best picture at the BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday, Reuters reported. Scottish director Lynne Ramsay’s movie starring Tilda Swinton as the mother of a troubled boy who went on a killing spree premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May. “In the end, we were simply bowled over by one film, a sublime, uncompromising tale of the torment that can stand in the place of love,” said John Madden, chair of the judging panel. Candese Reid took the British newcomer award for Junkhearts, her first professional acting gig. The Sutherland Award for most original and imaginative feature debut went to Argentinean director Pablo Giorgelli for Las Acacias. Werner Herzog’s death-row examination Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life was chosen best documentary. David Cronenberg and Ralph Fiennes were the previously announced winners of the prestigious BFI Fellowship. Fest closes Thursday with a gala screening of Terence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea, adapted from Terence Rattigan’s play and starring Rachel Weisz.
