Product Description

It was the film that put Peter Jackson on the international film circuit. It was the film that rocketed Kate Winslet to fame. It was the film based on a crime that shocked a nation. Discover the grim and wonderful world of Heavenly Creatures. Pauline is a student in New Zealand who has no affection for her family or her classmates, but when the beautiful and wealthy Juliet enrols at her school, the pair become best friends. Through their shared tastes in art, literature, and music they build an elegant fantasy world. However, when Juliet’s parents threaten to separate the girls, they make a ruthless pact to preserve their fairytale forever, whatever the cost…

Starring Academy-Award winner Kate Winslet (Titanic), Melanie Lynskey (Two and a half men, Win Win) and directed by Academy-Award winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Heavenly Creatures is a gripping and intelligent account of friendship with a dark edge.
