Underrated film from Jackson and Winslet...

7 years, 5 months ago at Mar 10 19:22
Heavenly Creatures is a really terrifying story about a true story that happened quite a long time ago. This film wasn't so much scary but it was just a really psychological story to watch. It was a film that is very hard to watch. It seems a very peaceful story to start with during the first 20 minutes of the film but when the two girls were getting closer from best friends into a lesbian relatio... read more

I was very curious about this movie, and it didn't fail to deliver for me. Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey were great, dark and funny, and the whole thing kept my attention the whole time.

The imagery in this movie is done very well and the last scene is just remarkable.

A very good movie

To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. This movie seriously came out of nowhere. Indeed, before that, Peter Jackson was the King of the Nasties, making some crude but hilarious horror comedies.

View all Heavenly Creatures reviews
Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme met in school during the 1950s. Instant best friends, they proceeded to spend every minute possible together, often writing about a fantasy land of their own invention. More and more estranged from their respective families, the two girls realise that they are extremely different from most other people, and agree to take any steps necessary to ensure that they are not seperated. The two families are increasingly concerned about the girls' friendship in a strictly moralistic era.

"FROM PAGE TO SCREEN Melanie Lynskey Melanie Lynskey. If you watch network TV or a slew of indies, you will know her instantly, though you may not be able to put face to name (a recurring role on CBS’ hugely popular Two and a Half Men has ensured face recognition for her forever). In Heavenly Creatures, Lynskey debuted opposite neophyte Kate Winslet, who quickly rose to the cinema’s A-List. Lynskey’s career, while successful, hasn’t followed the same traditional Hollywood leading lady tra"
