THE LOVELY BONES (2009)
“The Lovely Bones” is based on a best-selling novel which is written by Alice Sebold. The story is about a girl named Susie who has been murdered and her confusion between heaven and earth. If you have seen the trailer before, the movie offers tremendous images of heaven. But, after I have watched it, substantively I do not find the surprising element on that description. The heaven’s images have similarity on what we have already seen in “What Dreams May Come” (1998). But on the other hand, I think the movie successfully delivers the drama in a romantic and beautiful way. The essence of the story is simple, but we can clearly feel the brittleness and sorrow around the characters. The narration and glimpse of the Susie’s past in the beginning brings us sufficient mood to build sympathy. The Scene that involves Suzie and her boyfriend Brian (Jack Kebel) is a scene stealer in thiz movie. Thiz is a recent movie that is directed by Peter Jackson, one of the greatest Directors in our time. Peter Jackson is widely known for his previous movies like the trilogy of "Lord of the Rings" (2001-2003) and the remake of "King Kong" (2005). Susie Salmon is played by Saoirse Ronan. Previously, Ronan has made her promising debut in a great drama “Atonement” in 2007. Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz are played as her parents and Susan Sarandon as her grandmother. The villain is convincingly played by Stanley Tucci. I think Saoirse Ronan has a potential skill to become greater Actress in the future, even greater than the other rising star Dakota Fanning. We will be seeing more of her great performances in the future.
