Heavenly Creatures DVD
SKU ID #313017
They're no angels. Based on the real-life tale of scandalous schoolgirl murder that rocked New Zealand in the 1950s, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet makes a delirious debut in Peter Jackson's "Heavenly Creatures" (1994). Awkwardly shy Pauline (Melanie Lynskey) admires British new girl Juliet for being everything she isn't: confident, beautiful, wealthy, and bold. Opposites attract, and soon the two are soul mates who retreat from the world of oppressive authority and thrive in their own literal fantasy land. But when their delirious bond is threatened, the girls' detachment from reality turns into a deadly tragedy. Sun-drenched and surreal, the film is as much a dazzling feast for the senses as it is a captivating true-life tale of love and murder.
