Review Movie | Beautiful Creatures

Semalam saya dan 2 orang classmate pergi tengok midnight movie.
Sebuah cerita yang romantis, berpuitis dan tak sangka banyak lawak.
Bagi saya movie ini sangat menarik dan boleh dijadikan #mustwatchmovie
Dalam movie ni, saya paling suka rumah keluarga Lena.
Seriously cantik! Saya suka tangga dia yang tersangat nampak mewah.

Berikut merupakan sinopsis yang saya petik daripada Wikipedia.

In Gatlin, South Carolina, Ethan Wate awakens from a recurring dream of a girl he doesn't know. In narration, he describes his enjoyment of reading banned books, his despair of his small-town existence and his dreams of leaving for college. Arriving for his first day of junior year, Ethan notices newcomer Lena Duchannes, who resembles the girl he has been dreaming about. The other students do not take kindly to her and spread gossip regarding her reclusive uncle, Macon Ravenwood, and her family being devil worshippers. Overhearing these whispers, Lena tenses and the classroom windows shatter, amplifying the fears and suspicions of the class and the townspeople at large that she is a witch.

On a drive home, Ethan nearly runs over Lena, whose car has broken down. He gives her a ride home and the two bond over their shared love of poetry and having both lost their mothers. Ethan drops Lena off but later finds a locket and returns to the mansion to give it to her as a present. The touch of the locket triggers a shared flashback to the Civil War, after which he awakens at his home. Macon disapproves of their growing romance and conspires with Ethan's family friend, Amma, to keep the two separated but Ethan persists and Lena confesses that she and her family are "casters", capable of performing a variety of magical spells such as changing the weather and illusion casting. On her 16th birthday, Lena's true nature will steer her towards either the light or the dark and Lena fears being consumed by evil and hurting those she loves. Ethan insists she is responsible for her own choices and that regardless of her insecurities she is a good person.

Matters are complicated by the arrival of two immensely powerful dark casters who aim to push Lena to the dark: Ridley, Lena's provocative cousin/childhood friend and Sarafine, Lena's mother, who has possessed Mrs. Lincoln, and foresees Lena becoming a more powerful caster than her. Lena and Ethan use the locket to re-experience the flashback in its entirety and it reveals their ancestors, caster Genevieve Duchannes and mortal Confederate soldier Ethan Carter were in love. Ethan was shot in battle and Genevieve revived him using a forbidden spell that caused her to go dark and curse the women of the Duchannes family line. They consult with Amma, who is in fact a seer/keeper of a caster library beneath the town library. The most ancient of these books, the Book of Moons, reveals the secret to undoing the curse: one of Lena's loved ones has to die. Unwilling to take Ethan's life, Lena instead erases his memories of their time together.

Ridley seduces and enchants Ethan's best friend Link and gives him a bullet to use in an upcoming Civil War reenactment of theBattle of Honey Hill taking place on Lena's birthday. During the reenactment, Link and Ethan agree to "kill" each-other so they can ditch the reenactment. While at the ceremony for her 16th birthday, Lena feels the shock of the curse being broken and runs off to Ethan, clutching his dying body as Ridley and Sarafine egg her on to give in to her grief and accept the dark willingly. Lena lashes out in anger, sending lightning strikes through the crowd reenactors until Ethan transforms into Macon, having previously disguised himselfas Ethan to become the sacrifice needed to break the curse. His dying words are for Lena to "Claim yourself" and she causes the moon to disappear, stopping it from claiming her for the dark. Lena allows Ridley to flee and pulls Sarafine from Mrs. Lincoln's body, defeating her.

Months later, a still-amnesiac Ethan stops by the library to visit Amma before leaving for a college campus tour with Link and apologizes to Lena for not having gotten to know her during their time in Gatlin. Just after Link drives past the town line, Ethan recalls their memories together and gets out of the car to yell Lena's name. From way off in the library, Lena hears his voice.

Movie ini diadaptasikan daripada sebuah novel.
