The Lovely Bones (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Friday, March 19, 2010 | 9:22 AM

Genre: Drama/Thriller/Crime/Mystery/Fantasy

Starring: Rachel Weisz, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Saoirse Ronan, Rose McIver, Susan Sarandon, Michael Imperioli

Set in the 1970's, a happy average American family faces one of the most disastrous crimes of society. Young 14-year-old Susie Salmon (Ronan) is murdered by her rapist, paedophile neighbour, George Harvey (Tucci). Her father Jack (Wahlberg) and mother Abigail (Weisz) get into a desperate search for the rapist and for months altogether are left without a trail. The family finds it hard to get over the loss and cracks in their relation start to appear. Meanwhile, Harvey is busy planning his next victim. The movie has an extremely strong and emotional plot, but plays too much on Susie's afterlife. The constant transition between reality and heaven goes a bit too far and the movie would be an absolutely fantastic watch if it wasn't this aspect. Stanley Tucci has put on a fine piece of acting which simply steals the entire show away.

Thumbs up: Stanley Tucci, plot
Thumbs down: Susie's afterlife story

Rating: 7.3/10
