Three sentence movie review: Beautiful Creatures
I’ve wanted to see this ever since I saw Emma Thompson doing a southern accent in the preview, but I was reminded of it recently because Alden Ehrenreich plays young Han Solo in the upcoming movie, and I wanted to do some catching up with him.* This movie was great fun, having all sorts of movie delights: small town, southern, good/evil witches, an important birthday, first love, big weather things. Both Ehrenreich and Alice Englert** were enjoyable in this Southern Gothic frippery.
Cost: Netflix subscription
Where watched: at home
*He was delightful as Hobie Doyle in Hail, Caesar!
**Ehrenreich & Englert! Try saying that three times fast.

This has been on my TBR for AGES (simply ages). I don’t recall hearing about the quality of the movie. Good to know you enjoyed it, though!!!
Sometimes that book-before-movie rule gets in the way of seeing movies.
