About this Article

The Southern-fried supernatural romance "Beautiful Creatures" beams with the sort of genteel tweener appeal that neither the "Twilight" saga nor "The Hunger Games" quite achieves. There's almost a sweetness in how Richard LaGravenese spins the obligatory elements of teen rebellion and romantic destiny wishfulness into an amusing tale of true love between a mortal guy and an immortal witch.
