Tilda Swinton interested in silent cinema

(Cover) - EN Movies - Tilda Swinton admits that she prefers silent cinema.

The actress stars in We Need to Talk about Kevin, an adaption of Lionel Shriver’s bestselling 2003 novel of the same name. The film follows a mother called Eva as she recounts events leading up to her son Kevin’s shocking massacre of his fellow students at his school.

The movie premiered at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

Tilda recently revealed that despite her articulate performances she enjoys playing characters with few lines.

“I’m much more interested in silent cinema,” Tilda admitted to Empire magazine. “If you did a word count, I’m pretty word-light. I’m pretty dumb. Probably the dumbest performer in the last 20 years, I’d say. I’m much more interested in working dumb. I kind of think that’s what cinema is for.”

The 50-year-old has starred in a wide range of Hollywood movies including The Chronicles of Narnia and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

But, in the past Tilda has controversially declared that she has “no interest” in acting.

However her attraction to people and performance has ensured that she always returns to film. Read more at Film-News uk
