The Lovely Bones (2009)

This is a noteworthy movie. In 1973, 14-year-old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) is tricked into an underground playhouse, murdered by her reclusive neighbor (Stanley Tucci), and becomes trapped in spiritual limbo. The beautiful afterlife is a lively and colorful place altered by your imagination. She attempts to connect with her family back on earth. Her father (Mark Wahlberg) is desperately trying to solve the case, but is hindered by the local police force and a lack of evidence.

The film was directed by Peter Jackson. The plot is based on the 2002 novel by Alice Sebold. She was raped during her first year of college, but later went back and graduated. The film was shot in Pennsylvania and New Zealand. The DVD will be released on April 20.
