One Comment on “The Lovely Bones”

  1.   peachy said on August 18th, 2010:

    Just watched the movie and I thought it was TERRIBLE! I really liked the book, but the substance got lost in the director’s focus on cinematographic surreal effects – way too many flashbacks, visions of heaven, vacuous narrative from the deceased. It was really way overdone, and you really couldn’t connect at all to the characters.
