Yep still around........life just gets to bloody busy sometimes.
Thanks to Foxtel I recently had the privilege of having the movie channels for free for a couple of weeks and managed to catch up on some of my favorite movies.
One that I hadn't watched for years was Heavenly Creatures, this movie was Kate Winslet's first major role and also starred Melanie Lynskey (who incidently I sat through the whole movie thinking, where have I seen her before??...Google and you will be surprised)
Peter Jackson, from Lord of the Rings fame was co-producer and it was one of his first movies too.
This movie is based on a true story, set in Christchurch, New Zealand where I grew up and the "incident" referred to happened about 10 years before I was born. My mum actually remembers hearing about it but as she was only about 11 when it happened so she is a bit vague on the details. If you check the details out on IMBD it lists the genre as: Crime, Drama, Romance, Thriller and Biography and I totally agree.
I would give this movie a go, it is not really violent except where it needs to be, it deals with "mental illness" in the 50's and it happened in sleepy Christchurch were nothing much ever happens..........
