Genres: Teen-Childhood, Serial Killers, Family, Detective, Surreal-Fantasy, Old-Young

Plot – Spoilers:
Set in the ’70s, the Salmon family are a relatively happy family who tick all the boxes of the Happy American Family: Two girls, a boy, Dad and Mom. They sit around the dinner table. The parents are always checking on their kids and even involve the kids in their personal hobbies.

Some of the family’s happiness comes of as awkward, even cringy. What isn’t awkward though, is the happiness of 14 year-old Susie, the eldest of the Salmon kids. She is excited about her crush and things like movie club at school or hanging out with Grandma at the mall. The whole film essentially laments how one man can snatch away all this happiness.

At over 2 hours, The Lovely Bones at times seems like it can’t decide whether it wants to be a movie about a serial killer or a Hollywoodised family flick. What keeps it together though, is the very watchable, earnest face of Saoirse Ronan, a great performance by Stanley Tucci and the expected visual mastery of Peter Jackson.

        One place I’ ve been finding a few ‘ gems’ of documentaries & obscure films for free recently is in Daily Motion.It’s incredible what some people are the time to put on there ,I’ m in the UK & we have to.pay nearly £200/a year just to ‘ own’ tv ( BBC tv licence) their art / music& nature documentaries are pure class but I for one apart from Netflix UK ( the US one is blocked here) & Amazon Prime have no other access to films & that’s why this site is so brilliant.I don’t do a lot of the gore stuff ( some but not much) on here or anything with sexual violence ,too old ‘ve all that sh*t!

      You obviously weren’t paying attention, which from the tone of your comment is not at all surprising. If she hid the evidence then why did the police show up and rope off his house as a crime scene? Hmmm?

      Derp.

      It’s better to keep one’s mouth shut and let everyone think you’re an idiot then to open your trap and prove the point.

    Well done…. not exactly what I would consider and effed-up movie but still… it was a captivating film masterfully crafted, well acted and superbly told. 5* all around!

    And once again I have to thank the EUM crew for offering it.

    The film was ok, good acting from main character. A little too cutsey for me though, didn’t find it very sad. I guess I was looking more for misery porn though.

    ‘Serial killer’? More like a glorified pedo. This chap was way too green to be a serial killer. 1st reason: staying in the same place for too long, i.e., shitting where you eat; an absolute no, no. 2nd reason: Keeping trophies; ego is a significant hindrance. Third, and the dead giveaway: not backing that truck up closer to the landfill; I was cringing watching those two meatheads breaking their backs while lugging that safe across the yard.
