Heavenly Creatures

2013 Film Challenge - Heavenly Creatures (1994)
  Heavenly Creatures is a 1994 New Zealand drama film directed by Peter Jackson, who also directed the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Based on a true story from 1953 and 54, Heavenly Creatures is about two teenage girls named Pauline Parker (Nicky Lynskey) and Juliet Hulme (Kate Winslet) These two girls have an obsessive friendship, leading to doctors thinking they are “homosexual” (still considered a mental disorder at the time in New Zealand.. The events of the film are based on actual diary entries from Pauline Parker during that time. The two girls eventually team up to kill Pauline’s mother.
Rating: 9/10 ★★★★★★★★★☆
 Comments: This film was absolutely brilliant. I must say though, it isn’t for everyone. The film tends to be a little slow at times, which is why it only received nine out of ten stars. However, the times when it wasn’t slow were incredible. The colors and soundtrack of the film suit it perfectly, as well as the costumes, settings, and overall appearance of the film. The reason I say the film isn’t for everyone is because, well, they kill their mother. It’s very dark and strange at times, but overall, I loved it.
