The Lovely Bones review

Sorry that I'm just now getting to the review. We saw this last Sunday and I thought it was great. I was a little worried going into it because the movie is almost 2.5 hours and it's hard for me to stay interested and awake in movies that are that long, but it definitely kept me intrigued the entire time. I'd heard great things about this book, but I never got around to reading it. I'm glad I didn't though because the movie is pretty suspenseful and if I'd read the book it would have been ruined. Okay, not ruined, but I wouldn't have been on the edge of my seat like I was. The story itself was great, but what made the movie even better was the beautifully portrayed imagery of the area between heaven and earth. Everything was very artistic and really added to the film. The acting was great too, but I'm not an expert or anything on that so I won't give any further elaboration. I recommend you see this, unless you live in Lake County because it's not in the theater anymore. Um might be thinking "didn't this just come out?" Yes, yes it did, but since Lakeport Cinema only has 5 screens they have to rotate through movies very quickly. Most are only here for a couple of weeks :(
