My Review
I think this is a very unique film that try's it's very best to not be like that godaful Twilight series.Heres how in review. The Film revolves around a teenager named Ethan who has a dream where apparently it's all dark and from a far away distance he can see this girl but not her face. One day in school the new girl named Lena Ravenwood comes and he thinks there is something unique about her or some sense of attraction toward her. Eventually through the visits Lena tells Ethan about her family of Casters. This film is great with just one flaw it seems silly like hell. But with great practical affects from the spinning dining room scene it seems great with special affects. Some of the acting is very good some is a little poor. The actors i did like were Alden Ehrenrich who plays Ethan Wate, Alice Englert who played Lena Ravenwood,Jeremy Irons as Macon Ravenwood, Viola Davis as Amma, Emmy Rossum as Ridley and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lincoln. The camera also seems a little shaky in some scenes in others it looks like beautiful cinematography all around a great film better then that Godafful Twilight series and i give Beautiful Creatures a 4 out of 5.
