photocall. She posed with co-stars John C. Reilly

There's lots of buzz about Swinton's peformance in the role, and we hear she's a frontrunner for a best actress award at the prestigious film festival. She plays the mother of a murderous son in the upcoming flick, which has already gotten great reviews.
The movie is based on the 2003 Lionel Shriver book of the same name, and the BBC acquired the filming rights in 2005, though it took five years for the filming to begin. Swinton signed on for the role in March 2009 and filming began the following April.
