The Lovely Bones Movie

Saoirse Ronan is true to the character of Susie Salmon. She is the best thing about the picture. Last night she won an IFTA award for her performance.

On the way to see it I heard a review on the radio. Matk Wahlberg and Susan Sarandon faced criticism but I actually enjoyed their performances.

Peter Jackson's portrayal of the inbetween and heaven - well it was nice, flowers, birds etc. but he has been thrashed for lack of imagination. After the LOTR I can see why he must have been drawn to the challenge of creating a fantastical world onscreen. I did enjoy the sequence where Jack Salmon is breaking the ships in bottles in his study and Susie sees them floundering and breaking on the shore of her other world, this worked well.

Since Stanley Tucci  has been nominated for an oscar for best supporting actor for his portrayal of the serial killer Mr. Harvey I don't see why Ronan hasn't been nominated!
