First published in Reviews

Based on the first book in the Caster Chronicles series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Creatures is a supernatural love story about a teenager with strange powers torn between the forces of darkness and light.

Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert) possesses incredible abilities, passed down through the generations, which have compelled her to remain distant from the people she loves. She arrives in the small town of Gatlin and immediately catches the eye of Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), who hopes to escape the backwater for a brighter future.

Lena is reluctant to allow Ethan into her life but romance blossoms. However, her 16th birthday approaches, when she must take part in a ritual known as the Claiming, which will dictate whether she is destined to use her powers for good or evil. Directed by Richard LaGravenese, the film co-stars Emma Thompson, Viola Davis and Eileen Atkins.
