Beautiful Creatures (DVD)
Based on the New York Times best-selling young adult novel, this hauntingly intense coming-of-age story about two teenage star-crossed lovers in a small South Carolina town who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town has been adapted and directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King). Oscar® winners Emma Thompson (Harry Potter films) and Jeremy Irons (The Mission), Oscar® nominee Viola Davis (The Help), Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum (Shameless) and more play the cursed denizens of the small-town in this supernatural love story.]]>
Beautiful Creatures flies into the otherworldly romantic sphere occupied by the Twilight films, Buffy, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood--even Charmed. Based on the best-selling young adult book by Kami Garcia, the film adaptation of Beautiful Creatures tells a romantic tale between two young people with mysterious, dark backgrounds--and more than one secret. The young stars, Alice Englert as Lena and Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan, to whom she's mysteriously drawn, have a sweet, believable chemistry. And because it's directed by pro Richard LaGravenese (the underrated but fabulous Living Out Loud, P.S. I Love You), Beautiful Creatures is blessed with high production values; a quick, satisfying pace; and a supporting cast to die for (maybe literally). Emma Thompson, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, and Jeremy Irons, especially, seem to be enjoying themselves immensely as titular grownups in a teenage love story. This cast--and Lena's unexpected but badass supernatural power--all help add up to a delicious guilty pleasure. Beautiful Creatures shines with much more polish than some of the Twilight films, but carries just as much dramatic yearning. As well it should. --A.T. Hurley
Good movie. Could've used something more but a good beginning for the young actors.Published 8 days ago by Melissa A
it's cute in a quirky way. it's a teen romance and felt suitable for the teens watching it. I think it followed the book fairly closely.Published 14 days ago by Kate

This movie is supposedly a teen flick but I guess I'm a teenager at heart. I've watched this several times and still I had to order the movie to keep.Published 25 days ago by Amazon Customer
