From Academy Award winning director Peter Jackson (Lord Of The Rings, King Kong) and producer Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan) comes the extraordinary story about one girl's life, and everything that came after.

When 14-year-old Susie Salmon was murdered, she left her unfinished life behind. But now from her place in a strange but beautiful in-between world, she must help her father catch her killer and protect her family before she can finally move on. Filled with thrilling suspense, hope and the redeeming power of love, it's one of the best films of the year!

Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Alice Sebold,


  • Immersive 15-week diary segments hosted by Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens

The Lovely Bones did not get the best of reviews when it was released in theatres and it's difficult to understand why. Possibly it may be due to the subject matter, which can make difficult viewing as the story centres around the murder of a girl whose journey to "heaven" you follow as she watches her family struggle to come to terms with her life being cut short. Another reason could be that readers of the book it was based on don't feel it lives up to the novel. I thought Peter Jackson did a decent job of a difficult task, the cast are very good especially Saoirse Ronan & Stanley Tucci.

 Mesmerising visually......flawed in other ways.

I went to see this having not yet read the book (one of many I still need to get around to) so I'm not going to compare book to film. With cinema adaptations I never always feel that's always wisest because so many books end up altered in the transition but I know how well beloved the book is for some, so as I said this review is just about the film.

On December 6th, 1973 fourteen year old Susie Salmon is murdered by her neighbour, Mr Harvey. Finding herself in the 'in-between' space she finds herself in a world shaped by her own mood while watching over her family and friends - and her murderer - as they deal with the aftermath of Susie's disappearance in different ways.

I liked it. It's not as bad as the worst reviews suggest, it's not as good as the best suggest. To me it seems there are two different films trying to co-exist in one (Susie's journey in her afterlife which blends artistic expression and seems to want to be a high-budget experimental dreamscape and the 'real' world story which plays out like a supernatural thriller/emotional drama/horror as Susie's killer comes under suspicion from her family) and they don't always mix well, though separately are effective.

Where the muddled narrative undermines the film cinematically, the superb acting from Saiorse Ronan as Susie and Stanley Tucci as Mr Harvey more than compensate, although nearly the whole cast acquit themselves well. Ronan is magnificent through the entire film and conveys beautifully every emotion she's asked to. Tucci is frightening (and even as a 33 year old guy the scene in the dugout where Harvey takes Susie on her last day was incredibly tense and discomforting to watch) and makes for one of the creepiest screen villains in some time. And in a moment of light relief Susan Sarandon delights when her booze-swilling glamour-puss Grandmother comes to spend time with the family!

Another plus is the absolutely painstaking recreation of 1973. As with everything Jackson does, it looks beautiful and lovingly created. Overall, though, his overlong film meanders too much, and it's focus also wanders tonally. It's possibly hard to sit through in a cinema, but I guarantee in the comfort of one's own home, it will be much easier to appreciate.

Flawed in execution even if not intent, it's still very worth watching.

The Lovely Bones is a decent little movie adapted from a big selling and much loved book.
But for me that's the problem, the fact that it's a decent little movie from the maker of the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong.
I have not read the book, but was expecting another amazing experience. I think I set my expectations too high on this one.
Anyways the film is still pretty good, good Story, well Acted with a great Bad Guy. Some good moments of tension.
The settings of the 70s was well created. That's all really.
Watch it when you get a chance, maybe lower ur expectations for Peter "Lord of the Ring & King Kong" Jackson's latest

 A gem.

My wife read the book recently and was deeply moved by it, so I bought her the film. (She felt it a fair adaptation, albeit with some dampening of the effects on her family in the aftermath of her murder). I watched it without any preconceptions, and found it absolutely wonderful. Moving, tragic, uplifting and more.

I always have a look at wikipedia after watching a film I've not previously seen, and was surprised by some of the tosh that critics spouted. I have the distinct feeling that had it been a foreign language film, it would have been lauded in the same terms as Pan's Labyrinth, which is an all-time favourite of ours.

Set to remain a marginalised gem I fear, but a gem nonetheless.

I kept feeling there was more to this movie, more potential that was in the book (which I havent read). Pretty much the whole thing was badly composed and cheesy. A fraction of what it could have been.
