Beautiful Creatures: 11 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie
Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohlís Beautiful Creatures is a gushy teen romance with a paranormal bent. Itís a lot like the Twilight franchise in many ways, with love taking precedence as major issues in the paranormal community pop up. Casters (rather than ďwitches) have less of a cult following than vampires at the moment, but the idea is the same.
Luckily, Richard LaGravaneseís film takes the lush Southern backdrop, as well as the basic plot and best ideas from its novel counterpart and turns Beautiful Creatures into a film that never takes itself too seriously and in doing so, manages to have appeal for many different audiences. I had a fairly biased idea of what I would be getting when seeing the film, and Iím happy to say that Beautiful Creatures was nothing like what I expected from bringing this particular novel to life on the big screen.
Following are the eleven biggest changes I noticed in my screening of Beautiful Creatures. Feel free to remark on any changes you feel may have been more noticeable. There are many spoilers in the Beautiful Creatures book to movie comparison. Do not delve in if you want the film to be a surprise. .
There are more cute conversations between Ethan and Lena. Part of this is due to the movie not being told entirely in Ethanís perspective and part of this is due to Richard LaGravaneseís screenplay, which implements more humor. Either way, Lena and, especially, Ethan come across as far more likeable individuals, as well as a relationship worth fighting for.
