Conflicted - whether to really, really like this or be put off totally. It's not the subject matter (how many times have we come across "evil" young people acting out their hates) but in this film I cannot rationalize mother's ignoring her son's complete hatred for her over 16 years nor can I understand dad's complete obliviousness to the two-faced kid he's got. Don't mum and dad ever talk? Is he blind; is she impotent? Doesn't make sense to me. Better they had tried to cure their son and failed; now that would've been more realistic to me. Reading Ezra Miller's bio (he was Kevin as a teenager) is a bit scary too - he certainly was the right person for the part.
