The Lovely Bones * Peter Jackson (2009)

Peter “Heavenly Creatures” Jackson returns to the smaller film after a few blockbusters. “The Lovely Bones” is a nice film with several comparisons to “Heavenly Creatures”. It is about a youthfull girl (one this time) and is a drama with some heavier elements, but “The Lovely Bones” is not as heavy as “Heavenly Creatures”. The story is about Susie, a 14 year old girl that was murdered and we witness Susie in het “in between world” and her parents and all the people that stayed behind in the ‘real world’. Both worlds and somehow linked which is nicely worked out. Susie’s world is nicely given form and the story (based on a book) is quite originel. A nice film.
