International bestseller The Lovely Bones opens in select theaters today…and you know its going to be good because Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame directed it. (Let’s pray it’s not 3 hours.)
If you haven’t read the book, the story centers around 14 year old Susie Salmon who was brutally raped and murdered by a sadistic neighbor — the twist — Susie narrates from her own personal heaven and watches how the lives of her family members unfold all while trying to come to terms with her own death.
The cast looks pretty stellar featuring Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci.
Watching the trailer, Peter Jackson has certainly created a whimsical, visually rich “in between” world.
What do you believe happens when you die? Do you get to create your own heaven?
