Hey M Girls,
We've been counting down all week long, and now the big day is finally here -- Beautiful Creatures hits theaters today, a.k.a. Valentine's Day! M Editor Jen was lucky enough to visit the New Orleans set back in June and has since seen the flick not once, but twice (yep, it's that good!).
Here are our reasons why you should absolutely check it out!
1. Everyone loves a love story If you've seen our March cover, "Star Love Secrets" you know that we're in LOVE with love! Enter Beautiful Creatures, a story about love winning out against all odds. The flick tells the tale of star-crossed lovers Ethan and Lena and their fight to stay together. When we met stars Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert it was totally clear that they had great chemistry, and it definitely translates on screen!
2. It'll make you LOL So, believe it or not, I found myself cracking up at many points during the movie! Star Alden Ehrenreich is super-funny (on AND off screen!) but the real laughs come from his quirky BFF Link, played by Thomas Mann (you may remember him from Victoria Justice's Fun Size). His one-liners will have you laughing 'til you cry!
3. It's magical...literally! Yep, this movie will make you fall under its spell! Since Lena is a caster (a.k.a a witch with powers) she can control all things nature related...which gets pretty cool visually. Our fave scene? When Lena has a wee bit of a temper tantrum at a family dinner, things get out of hand! The magic is one of the best parts of the movie.
4. It's totally relatable That being said, at the end of the day this is just a tale about fitting in -- something we can all relate to! You'll feel Lena's pain as she struggles to fit in with the mean girls who tease her and alienate her every day.
So, Let's dish: -Are you going to check out Beautiful Creatures? Did you read the books?
