“The Lovely Bones” is the movie adaptation of the book by Best-Selling author Alice Sebold, and the movie is directed by Academy Award winning director Peter Jackson (“Lord of the Rings Trilogy”). I thought this book was amazing! If you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend reading it! I know this is going to sound like an adjective fest but truly this book was beautiful, chilling, haunting, heart breaking, and uplifting.

Here is a brief synopsis of the novel:
Fourteen year old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan, “Atonement”) becomes a victim of rape and murder. As she copes with her own death from heaven, she watches her family and friends grieve while the police search for her killer.

**POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD**

I know the premise is a little unnerving, but really it is a beautiful story. I laughed, I cried, and went through a whirlwind of other emotions when I read this book. Literally it is an emotional roller coaster. From heaven Susie tries to remember all of her fond memories as she watches her sister and brother grow up before her eyes and revels at all the experiences that they encounter and sadly some she will never get a chance to. With light comes some darkness as well. Her parents, in particular her father becomes obsessed with finding her killer and becomes distant and his marriage suffers for it. As Susie watches over her family she becomes frustrated that she doesn’t have a way to tell them who murdered her because she wants nothing more than her family and friends to find peace.

Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed Peter Jackson from the 2009 Comic-Con convention and he talked a little about “The Lovely Bones”. During the interview Jackson said the following: “of all the films I’ve ever made, it is the one I’m most proud of.” Watch the full interview here. I will go out on a limb here and say if this film is done right, this film can be a serious Oscar contender! Last night, Entertainment Tonight showed an exclusive first look of “The Lovely Bones” and called it “one of the year’s most anticipated movies”!

Here’s the ET promo trailer from Trailer Addict:
