HEAVENLY CREATURES

Based on the true story of two girls, Juliet Hulme and Pauline Rieper in 1950s Christchurch, Heavenly Creatures is the story of their extraordinary teenage friendship and how they murdered Pauline’s mother. Juliet (Kate Winslet) moved with her wealthy family from England where she befriended working class Pauline (Melanie Lynskey). Their passion for fantasy, novel writing evolved into an intense make-believe ‘fourth’ medieval fantasy world. When their parents attempt to separate the girls, a sinister plan unfolds.
