Lovely Bones

Always nervous when I go to see a film and I’ve really enjoyed the book (although current whereabouts unknown. Note to self: stop lending books). However, I have just spent and entirely enjoyable two hours in the cinema watching this. Saoirse Ronan is brilliant as Susie and Susan Sarandon provides a much needed counterpoint to the tension, yes it is possible to laugh in a film about a teenage girl’s murder.
Actually one of the reasons this is in some ways better than the book, is that cinema really means heaven can come to life. It’s a little bit weird but I think it works.
