'The Lovely Bones' Captures the Afterlife With Beauty and Light
Saoirse plays 14-year-old Susie, who narrates the story from the afterlife, which is interpreted with the fantastical eye of director Peter Jackson. The depiction of Susie's in-between world is just as fantasy-filled as you would think coming from the man behind the Lord of the Rings films. It's a place that is neither heaven nor Earth, shot with a dreamy sensibility and stunning use of light.
You'll see what we're talking about in our Lovely Bones photo gallery, which includes shots from the film and a behind-the-scenes pic of Peter and Saoirse hard at work.
