Check out our latest competition to win Heavenly Creatures, the remastered DVD that put director Peter Jackson on the map.
|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. A starkly original cinema-going experience based upon a true life story, Heavenly Creatures is a stirring drama that offers up the unexpected. The story concerns Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme – outcasts who become best friends – whose bizarre fantasy life becomes more intense as their bond becomes increasingly more obsessive. When Pauline’s mother tries to intervene and split the girls apart, they bring about a terrible revenge, resulting in what is to this day still a celebrated and controversial case.Kate Winslet (Titanic) and Melanie Lynskey (The L Word) create two sympathetic and yet uncomfortably eerie characters in riveting portrayals. Peter Jackson’s direction, meanwhile, offers up an ethereal fantasy world into which the two girls escape; a vision of acclaimed Weta (Lord of the Rings) special effects that were truly groundbreaking at the time.Click here for our recent review of this classic film.
