Today is Valentine’s Day. If you’re reading this, you probably don’t have any important plans for today. If you do, sorry if I offended you. If you don’t welcome to my world. Besides Valentine’s Day, today also marks the release of the Beautiful Creatures movie. So if you have nothing else to do, grab a friend or go by yourself, and get a ticket to watch it. Need more information before you go? Don’t worry, I have taken the time to gather it for you. It should all be right here. Don’t forget to let me know if this was helpful to you. If at least one person found this helpful, I will create a post for all the other book adaptions I know about. You can also check out my review for the book, the link to it is at the bottom of this post.



TITLE: BEAUTIFUL CREATURES
DISTRIBUTOR: Warner Bros. Pictures
TYPE: Movie Adaptation

SYNOPSIS: 
Oscar® nominee Richard LaGravenese (“The Fisher King,””P.S. I Love You”) directs the supernatural love story “Beautiful Creatures” from his adaptation of the first novel in the best-selling series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), 17, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger-and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.

The danger of this strange dream world, however, is preferable to Ethan’s waking existence in Gatlin, South Carolina, a small, conservative Southern town that hasn’t caught up to the 21st century, where nothing ever changes and nothing ever happens. Trapped at home with a father who has completely withdrawn since the sudden death of Ethan’s mother, Ethan yearns for a life he can only read about in books.

But Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons), the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. Ethan finds himself immediately drawn to Lena, even though destruction seems to inexplicably follow her and it becomes apparent that she is a Caster, with powers beyond her control. The town, led by conservative Mrs. Lincoln (Emma Thompson), wants her banished. Even Gatlin’s all-knowing librarian, Amma (Viola Davis), is afraid history may repeat itself-a history of family secrets and a curse that looms for Lena as she approaches her 16th birthday. It is that time when a Caster is chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark.

But Lena’s fate may already be sealed by the curse that draws both her and Ethan into a tangled web of spells and peril from which there may be no escape.

  1. Did you see the movie yet? I am excited to see it, but i havent read the book yet. I bought it like 3 weeks ago and its quite long so I am worried I wont read it before the movie leaves the cinemas.
    I didnt do anything for Valentines Day either btw. I got a cool tin, heart shaped candy box with breaking dawn on the outside with bella, ed, and jacob on it. I loved that and it had a cullen crest necklace on it!
    I got normal chocolates and a huge stuff froggy. I love him, bit my doggy Bella does too so I gotta hide him. She’ll chew him up 🙁
