I have to say this has to be one of the best movies I have seen. Drama is really not my type of Genre, but this one I like...lol..It has some suspense to it. The Graphic Fantasy visual effects was really great, but what really was awesome is the story and meaning behind it. I don't remember when was the last drama movie I saw that made me a little eyed teary, I guess Im checkin my other Blog movie review.
A short introduction of the movie:
About an ordinary girl on her way home from school and was murdered in December 1973.
Susie(The main Character) was trapped in this "In-Between" fantasy place where she's able to see and observe all the stuff that she left on earth. She watched her family, mom and dad, Grandma, her murder mystery, her crush, and her murderer after her death.
Though the ending was kinda like a dissapointment for me with the pay-off from the murderer in the end, I was hoping it could be something more justice like electric chair or something for all the little girls she killed, But I guess a gruesome death is good enough. Well, This has the vibe of a family drama, so I guess high-school puppy love scene would suit to free her completely so I just have to suck it up..hehe.. And Of course, You can never bring a loved one back whatever you do, and we all must have to move on. I don't think "revenge" was the ideal focus in the story. In real life there are a lot of cases and stories that are unsolved.
Check out the trailer. It actually came out last year directed by Peter Jackson and also was on the book by Alice Sebold.
