"Oh, I Believe in Yesterday"... 2009 Ends the 2000's Decade... Here is a look into our past

It doesn't matter what you call the last decade, "Zeros", "Nils", "Oh-Oh's", "Oughts", "Oughties", or "Naughties", 2000-2009 defied our predictions and perceptions of life on this planet and forced us to examine our future way of existing. The 21st century spent more interest in celebrity culture, online shopping, and Twitter than the world still suffering from AIDS/Cancer, homelessness, poverty, unemployment, climate change, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, wars, bombings, unexpected deaths, and addiction to oil. The decade sure did change the world, but just not for the reasons we thought.

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.
