Underrated film from Jackson and Winslet...

12 years, 8 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 movie seems boring at some points, especially when the girls are in their fantasy land, but all in all a wonderful movie. 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. However, with this feature, he suddenly shifted gears and made a very compelling and original fantastic thriller/drama. Who could have... read more

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.

“Words cannot describe how good this film was. This is easily one of Peter Jackson's best films, and I think his most emotional and in many ways. Heavenly Creatures is disturbing and shocking, but it is also very beautiful, haunting and quite thoughtful as well, as well as having a masterly mix of nostalgia, menace and innocence. It looks beautiful, with the cinematography simply stunning, and the score is both haunting and beautiful. The story is interesting and the dialogue makes you think and even more than that. Peter Jackson directs wonderfully, and boasts superb performances not only from Kate Winslet and especially Melanie Lynksey- who is mesmerising in the more controlled and I suppose meatier role- but also from Diana Kent, Clive Morrison and Sarah Peirse. Overall, brilliant and on” read more

"Se basa en el Caso Parker-Hulme en Nueva Zelanda en el 1954. A pesar de tener un trasfondo tan oscuro se contrapone con su ficción fantasiosa y colorida. No solo es la historia de como dos chicas llegaron a cometer ese crimen atroz, también un análisis para conocer sus pensamientos, emociones y sueños. Es increíble como los elementos fantásticos que no envejecieron bien le dan ese toque nostálgico y precioso. Tiene planos y escenas muy interesantes que funcionan naturalmente. Sus actuacio"
