Lovely Bones

Quote:
The Lovely Bones is a 2009 drama film directed by Peter Jackson. It is a film adaptation of the award-winning and best-selling 2002 novel of the same name by Alice Sebold. The film stars Saoirse Ronan in the lead role as Susie Salmon, along with Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz, as her parents Jack and Abigail Salmon respectively, in supporting roles.

Plot
In 1973, Susie Salmon (Ronan), a 14-year-old girl living in Norristown, Pennsylvania, dreams of becoming a famous photographer. On December 6, Ray Singh (Reece Ritchie), a boy Susie has had a crush on, approaches her at her locker and slips a note into her textbook. He asks her out for the following Saturday and attempts to kiss her, but they are interrupted by a teacher (Thomas McCarthy) scolding a fellow classmate, Ruth Conners, (Carolyn Dando).
As Susie is walking home from school, she runs into her neighbor, George Harvey (Stanley Tucci), who coaxes her into seeing an underground den that he says he has built for the neighborhood children. While in the den, Susie becomes uncomfortable in Harvey's presence and tries to leave; when he restrains her, she kicks him in the face and runs out of the den back into the field, passing Ruth along the way. Meanwhile, the Salmon family begins to worry because of Susie not returning home yet. Her father, Jack (Wahlberg), leaves to go look for her. Susie makes it into town and sees her father, but he does not see her. Susie instead runs home, but discovers the house empty. She enters the upstairs bathroom to find Harvey soaking in a bathtub. After discovering her charm bracelet hanging on the sink faucet, near a bloody shaving razor, Susie realizes that she never escaped the den and was instead murdered by Harvey. As she screams in horror, she is pulled away into a surreal world that is neither heaven nor earth, but "The In-Between," where she continues to watch over her loved ones. She is unable to let go of her life and family despite her new afterlife friend, Holly (Nikki SooHoo), urging her to move on.
Police are called in to investigate Susie's disappearance four hours later . Detective Len Fenerman (Michael Imperioli) finds Susie's hat with traces of her blood on it and confirms that Susie has most likely been killed. In response, Jack develops all of Susie's pictures, and soon begins to obsessively research various neighbors, including Harvey, through their tax records. Fenerman interviews Harvey, but cannot find any evidence to pin him as a suspect. Susie's sister Lindsey comes to agree with her father on his suspicions, but their casework stresses Susie's mother, Abigail (Weisz), to the point where her alcoholic mother, Lynn (Susan Sarandon), moves into their home to look after the family. Stricken with grief and alienated from her husband, Abigail eventually leaves the family for California. In her afterlife, Susie decides to inspect a lighthouse that has been beckoning her to enter. Once there, she learns that Harvey has murdered several other young girls, including Holly, and that he is keeping Susie's body in a safe in his basement.
One night, Jack follows Harvey with a baseball bat into the cornfield seeking revenge upon him. However, Jack accidentally stumbles across Clarissa (Amanda Michalka), a friend of Susie's, with her boyfriend Brian (Jake Abel), who beats Jack unconscious. Jack is sent to the hospital, prompting Lindsey to break into Harvey's house looking for evidence. She discovers a notebook underneath the bedroom floorboard containing a sketch of the clubhouse and a piece of Susie's hair. Harvey returns home and catches Lindsey in his house. But Lindsey manages to escape and runs back home to discover that her mother, Abigail, has returned home. Fearing of being caught, Harvey flees Norristown, taking the safe containing Susie's body.
Susie's realm of afterlife begins to expand into a larger heaven, and she is greeted by Harvey's other victims. She declines Holly's urging to enter heaven along with the others, saying she has one more thing to do. Meanwhile, Ruth and Ray are present at the sinkhole when Harvey drives up to dispose of the safe. Susie returns to Earth and enters Ruth's body, causing her to collapse. Ray rushes to Ruth's aid only to discover she has become Susie. They share a kiss, completing Susie's last wish, and she returns to heaven.
Sometime later, during the winter, Harvey meets a young woman outside a diner and attempts to coax her into his car, but she rebuffs him. Suddenly, a large icicle falls from an overhead branch and hits Harvey on the shoulder, causing him to fall backward over a cliff and into a ravine, killing him. Susie sees that Lindsey and her boyfriend Samuel Heckler (Andrew James Allen) are married and expecting a child, that her mother is now able to go into her room, and that her family is healing. Susie refers to these as "the lovely bones" that grew around her absence. The film closes with Susie finally entering her larger heaven while wishing her audience a long and happy life.
Recently watched this movie. Brought tears in my eyes.

Re: Lovely Bones

As a mother of two, watching this movie was heart wrenching. I often wonder as parents we do our best to protect our kids. Is that enough? With such low life scums who dont even spare kids are moving around us, how do we train our kids to be safe and smart when we are ot with them.

I keep telling my son not to talk to strangers, or even people who are mere aquaintances. Even if they appear nice think what mommy would have advised you.

This movie is good but very sad

Re: Lovely Bones

I didn't like the movie... everything behind this movie was very good... good actors, director, camera work, special effects.... but final product wasn't as good.

Mahesh Bhatt will make sure that the pedophile is a hindu and he molests and murders a young muslim girl. And then how from Allahs heaven she sees this hindu molestor and her muslim family. And later her muslim father almost kills the hindu molestor but his pure religion prevents him from doing so and the police catch him at the very end.

Mahesh Bhatt then claims this had happened to his half-sister whose father was a muslim.
