The Lovely Bones

In 2002, Alice Sebold published one of her best selling books, The Lovely Bones. The story takes place in Pennsylvania, 1973, and focuses on a young girl who has been murdered by her neighbor. She watches from a heaven-like place as her family grieves and searches in vein for her body, while the killer lives on in anonymity. A touching story of loss and moving on, The Lovely Bones covers a tragic tale in one of the most unique and ingenious perspectives; the victim.

After years of acclaim and appraisal, The Lovely Bones is set to be released in theaters December 11, 2009. Award winning director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings) has once again used his talent to create a movie with almost magical imagery. With a superbly chosen cast, including names like Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz and Stanley Tucci, the film is said to be one of the most highly awaited films of the year.

The trailer for The Lovely Bones was released in August, and can be viewed here along with other information pertaining to the movie.
