Movie Review: The Lovely Bones (2009)

lovely bones

This was the antithesis of a date movie. But it was very, very good. The Lovely Bones, based on a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold, is the story of a teenage girl who was murdered -- and then continued to watch over her family.

It is a dark, dark movie. Not deliciously dark, like a Batman movie, but tragically dark, like No Country for Old Men. It moves slowly, but not at all tediously. The trailer suggested that it is a thriller, but it is not. The Lovely Bones is a marvelously sad tale, and I recommend it.

Grade: A

The official trailer:

By the way -- my movie reviews will never reveal anything not evident from the trailers. I don't do spoilers without warning readers.
