The Lovely Bones (Several locations)
Director: Peter Jackson
With: Saoirse Ronan, Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Rose McIver, Carolyn Dando, Nikki SooHoo, Michael Imperioli
It may be better not to have read the novel by Alice Sebold. Books create powerful personal images, that film seldom lives up to. I did not read the book, and I was most impressed with this movie.
Susie (Ronan) lives with her father (Wahlberg), mother (Weisz) and kid sister (McIver) in 1973 suburbia. She is a lively and sweet girl who is victimized by a murdering pedophile. This is no spoiler, as I think we all know this.
