Description

When newcomer Lena Duchannes arrives in the small town of Gatlin she quickly captures the attention of Ethan Wate, who only wants to escape what he views as a boring and dead end town. He quickly gets more than he bargained for, as Lena possesses strange powers that have long kept her at a distance from others in her life. Lena and Ethan are drawn together, but their budding romance is threatened by the dangers posed by Lena's being a Caster and her family's Dark powers, for upon her sixteenth birthday Lena must undergo the Claiming, a process that will decide her fate forever: Light or Dark.

Editorial Review

Beautiful Creatures flies into the otherworldly romantic sphere occupied by the Twilight films, Buffy, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood–even Charmed. Based on the best-selling young adult book by Kami Garcia, the film adaptation of Beautiful Creatures tells a romantic tale between two young people with mysterious, dark backgrounds–and more than one secret. The young stars, Alice Englert as Lena and Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan, to whom she's mysteriously drawn, have a sweet, believable chemistry. And because it's directed by pro Richard LaGravenese (the underrated but fabulous Living Out Loud, P.S. I Love You), Beautiful Creatures is blessed with high production values; a quick, satisfying pace; and a supporting cast to die for (maybe literally). Emma Thompson, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, and Jeremy Irons, especially, seem to be enjoying themselves immensely as titular grownups in a teenage love story. This cast–and Lena's unexpected but badass supernatural power–all help add up to a delicious guilty pleasure. Beautiful Creatures shines with much more polish than some of the Twilight films, but carries just as much dramatic yearning. As well it should. —A.T. Hurley
