Synopsis Jackson brings the written word to startling, striking life.4.5 stars out of 5 -- Peter Jackson returns to the engrossing and poetic imagery that earned him his name more than a decade ago.With reddish hair, brilliantly alive eyes and a seemingly irrepressible impulse for movement and activity, Ronan represents a heavenly creature indeed...3 stars out of 4 -- [With] the remarkable performance of Ronan....She and Tucci -- magnificent as a man of uncontrollable impulses -- help Jackson cut a path to a humanity that supersedes life and death.One element of the film that is consistently involving is the dreamscape look of the in-between world where Susie spends her time watching her murderer scheme, her sister Lindsey grow up and her parents fall apart..[W]ith several superb performances....Mr. Jackson, and his cinematographer, Andrew Lesnie, capture some lovely moments...4 stars out of 5 -- It deals with loss, grief, rage, familial breakdown and love....It's also energetic and entertaining...4 stars out of 5 -- [Saoirse Ronan] is emerging as a Jodie Foster for the noughties, making Susie spirited, smart, intense and adorable.Fourteen-year-old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) is just experiencing the pangs of first love when she's viciously murdered by her neighbor Mr. Harvey (Stanley Tucci), a predatory wolf in J.C. Penney clothing. As her family slowly begins drifting apart while struggling to make sense of their loss, Susie bravely attempts to find her footing in the hereafter. Meanwhile, down on earth, Mr. Harvey is feeling confident that he's covered his tracks well enough to get away with the crime, and begins honing in on his next victim -- Susie's younger sister, Lindsey (Rose McIver), who's beginning to suspect that he's not the harmless suburbanite he portrays himself to be. Director Peter Jackson reteams with KING KONG and LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy co-screenwriters Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh to adapt Alice Sebold's bestselling novel for the big screen.
