The movie´s story was written by Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. They did it great. They mixed the suspens and the drama in the story, they get that people were sad for moments, like when susie´s father cry for her dead, and have scared in other, like when her sister could be caught by the murder.
The movie has very good performances, specially, Saorse Ronon´s acting. In spite of Saorse is a very young actress, she could make an excellent and believable performance as the protagonist of the movie. Ronon won a lot of awards for her acting, like 7th Irish Film and Television Awards, 36th Saturn Awards and 2009 Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards.
Lovely Bones is an excellent movie, I loved the mix of suspend and drama in it so I recommend this film to people, who love drama films, or if you want to be scared and be moved.
