Synopsis

Based on a brutal murder that shocked 1950s New Zealand, Heavenly Creatures tells the story of two teenagers who develop an intense bond and inhabit a shared fantasy world. When their parents try to break them up, the girls go to extremes to defend themselves and their kingdom.

Our take

Between his early splatterfests and the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson delivered his most intimate of features. Starring Melanie Lynskey and Kate Winslet in her first big-screen role, Heavenly Creatures is a fevered tale of zealous co-dependency and deadly flights of imagination.
