The Lovely Bones – Movie Review

The Lovely Bones – Directed by Peter Jackson.

Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Jake Abel, Saoirse Ronan, Rose McIver, Stanley Tucci.

Tagline: The story of a life and everything that came after…

It admit it has been about a month since I watched this film, and without a doubt, this is one movie that is worth watching again.

The movie is based on the best selling book by Alice Sebold. The Lovely Bones is the story of a 14-year-old girl from suburban Pennsylvania who is murdered by her neighbor. She tells the story from Heaven, showing the lives of the people around her and how they have changed all while attempting to get someone to find her lost body. Simple enough plot. But it is more involved than that as we glimpse into the lives of other children who were sadly taken from this world by a pedophile.

Great performance by Saoirse Ronan (as Susie Salmon), as she narrates the events of her life, and the lives of others around her; And Stanley Tucci comes across brilliantly as the movie villain.

For those who like movies with a good ending, this is one to watch.
