Movie Monday: Beautiful Creatures

by: 
Pam, Standley Lake Library

Beautiful Creatures, based on the teen best seller by Kami Garcia, is set to release Feb. 13th. It’s a dreamy, southern gothic romance. The story is set in Gaitlin, South Carolina. Gaitlin is a typical small southern town where everyone knows everyone else’s business. Ethan, 16, and still reeling from the loss of his mother the previous year, begins having nightmares. Every night he wakes sweating and terrified from a dream of a girl who mysteriously slips from his hand and drowns in a pool of water. Can you guess what happens next? Yes, the girl from his dreams, Lena, moves to town. She is mysterious and lives with her reclusive uncle. She’s also a caster, aka witch, whose path will be chosen for her when she turns 16--a path toward darkness or a path toward the light.
