Our YA adaptation month rolls on as we discuss 2013’s BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, directed by Richad LaGravenese and based on the novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Witches–sorry, casters–and mortals be fallin’ in love as a centuries-long battle between good and evil finally comes to a head in this campy piece of Southern Gothic that shockingly failed to impress its intended teen audience. This film is truly bonkers, and we mean that as a compliment. So grab yourself a mint julep and watch as numerous Oscar winners (Jeremy Irons! Viola Davis! Emma Thompson!) embarrass themselves, all in the name of that potential franchise money. It’s kinda glorious.
