The Lovely Bones.
I know everyone always says, "read the book", when a film mirrors a novel, but in most cases, it's true. The book's better. I've seen The Lovely Bones, and was less than impressed. Stanley Tucci, however, was the best actor in the movie. Eerie & off-putting, he plays a perfect creepy neighbour, who doesn't sit right with anyone. For good reason. Suzy Salmon is murdered as a young girl, and stuck in the 'in-between'. Watching her family grieve & attempt to heal, also accepting her own death, on her own time. Definitely read, before watching.
