Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), 17, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger—and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.

The danger of this strange dream world, however, is preferable to Ethan's waking existence in Gatlin, South Carolina, a small, conservative Southern town that hasn't caught up to the 21st century, where nothing ever changes and nothing ever happens. Trapped at home with a father who has completely withdrawn since the sudden death of Ethan's mother, Ethan yearns for a life he can only read about in books.

But Ethan's mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons), the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. Ethan finds himself immediately drawn to Lena, even though destruction seems to inexplicably follow her and it becomes apparent that she is a Caster, with powers beyond her control. The town, led by conservative Mrs. Lincoln (Emma Thompson), wants her banished. Even Gatlin's all-knowing librarian, Amma (Viola Davis), is afraid history may repeat itself—a history of family secrets and a curse that looms for Lena as she approaches her 16th birthday. It is that time when a Caster is chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark.

But Lena's fate may already be sealed by the curse that draws both her and Ethan into a tangled web of spells and peril from which there may be no escape.

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Presidents Day A Good Day To Die Hard news Feb 18, 2013 Scott Gwin Holiday Weekend Box Office: Presidents Day A Good Day To Die Hard Maybe it's about time the Die Hard films started looking for a good day to die. Actually, Presidents Day 2013 might be a good choice. The fifth entry in the franchise might have topped the box office this weekend, but given the competition that's not saying much.
Why Alice Englert Almost Turned Down Beautiful Creatures And What Changed Her Mind news Feb 15, 2013 Eric Eisenberg Why Alice Englert Almost Turned Down Beautiful Creatures And What Changed Her Mind Ever since the young adult novel adaptation phase hit Hollywood the results have been quite mixed. While certainly some franchises have found incredible success with critics, there have been more than a few others that not only fail to be good movies, but also simply feel like they were made just for the quick cash grab.
Beautiful Creatures: 11 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie news Feb 15, 2013 Jessica Rawden Beautiful Creatures: 11 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie Luckily, Richard LaGravanese’s film takes the basic plot and best ideas from its novel counterpart and turns Beautiful Creatures into a film that never takes itself to 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 I’m happy to say that Beautiful Creatures was nothing like what I expected from bringing that particular novel brought to life on the big screen.
