A more bitter sweet take on a novel that drowns in grief and despair; however, the visuals and overall filming edits parallel the book as much as possible, but focus more on the hope and visual scenery of heaven more than the grieving process of a family.

I like "The Lovely Bones" a little, but not a whole lot. the reason why I'm recommending the movie is because of the incredible performance by Saoirse Ronan as the girl who was murdered, then had watch her family and her killer from Heaven, if you want to call it heaven, since she is in the inbetween worlds. Stanley Tucci plays the perfect villain. He might be nominated for next year's MTV Movie Awards as Best Villain. Her family I like a little, but Susan Sarandon's character smokes all the time. A wasted character. What I like about the movie aside from Ronan's performance and the costume design which fits the 1970's very nicely, I love the special effects of heaven. Unlike "Lord of the Rings," the special effects didn't overwhem the movie. I had a few problems with the movie, but I like this movie because of Saoirse Ronan. she gave an incredible performance.
