Lena has just moved to the small, Southern town of Gatlin, where the only person who seems to understand her -- or dream of bigger places or ideas -- is a cute guy named Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), who recognizes her instantly from the cryptic dreams he's been having every night. Lena is an orphan, and she's come to stay with her mysterious uncle, Macon Ravenwood (Irons), the patriarch of her powerful family. Powerful, because The Ravenwood clan are Casters, born with powers that ordinary mortals don't have, like the ability to move objects, control the elements, and even step out of normal space and time to communicate only with each other. But just as Lena feels ready to open up to Ethan, she discovers that their love is in imminent danger, because when female Casters turn 16, their destiny as either good or evil is revealed. Unwilling to let her nature be dictated by forces outside her control, Lena and Ethan set out together to uncover the strange, secret lore of their families' intertwined histories dating back to the Civil War, and figure out how to grant Lena the power to choose her own destiny.

Beautiful Creatures is a coming of age story, only what sets it apart is the tinge of paranormal romance. My biggest problem with the movie is that it's difficult to discern how much time has passed between scenes and timing is critical. Also, it felt like huge chunks of vital information were missing in places though I am aware this could be because I haven't read the book. Other than that though, the movie has a ton of potential and I was able to overlook many of it's smaller flaws.The strength of this movie lay in its amazing cast. Alden Ehrenreich (as Ethan) exudes this warm goofiness that endeared him to my heart. He's believable as the small-town guy with big dreams and the chemistry he shared with Englert was palpable. Alice Englert (as Lena) played the tempramental teen to perfection which is fitting for both the character's age and her precarious situation. She is, simply put, stunning. I also thought Jeremy Iron's (as Macon Ravenwood) performance was as equally powerful as his eccentric character. The only surprising performance that fell a bit flat for me was Emma Thompson's. As incredibly talented as she is, I thought she was a bit too over-the-top for my liking and it felt too theatrical for the grim nature of her character. All in all, the cast shined and played off eachother so well. If the actors don't appease you in Beautiful Creatures, the setting sure will. LaGravenese painted a perfect picture of the lazy Southern small town. The cinematography is haunting and ominous and magical and it plays well to the overall tone of the movie. I think it's interesting how LaGravenese tried hard not to rely too much on CGI SFX, instead, forgoing the green screen in favour of more traditional methods --- it is well noted and much appreciated! Overall, I did enjoy the movie despite being hard to follow and I'm eager to read the book series. It's a good one, just not perfect. With a bit more clarity this one would have most certainly been a winner!

I love, love, love this movie whether it's true to the book, I don't know. I haven't had a chance to read it though I've wanted to and when the movie was the only good thing on the hotel, of course I watched it. It was about 35 minutes in to the movie but I could keep my eyes off the screen. I found myself so in love with the movie, I had to watch the beginning and when I got to the part I had started watching on I still couldn't stop. I can't wait to read the book.

I enjoyed this book series for the most part. It wasn't great, but it was entertaining, and I really liked some of the characters. This movie was a terrible reflection of the book. I don't think someone that hadn't read the novels could even have followed the story. The casting was a mistake in almost every case. This was a huge disappointment. I suggest anyone finding themselves interested in this story, skip the film and simply enjoy the novels. No wonder it seemed to flop in the the theatres.

I think it is overall a good movie> Ethan is by far my favorite character, smart and charming, what girl wouldn't fall for him. I must admit, I enjoyed the movie a lot more than the book.
