"Beautiful Creatures" movie quotes tell the fantastical tale of a young powerful teen forced to choose between her family of witches and her mortal boyfriend. The supernatural romance movie was adapted into a screenplay by Richard LaGravenese based on the novel of the same name by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. LaGravenese also directed the film which released in the United States on February 14, 2013.

In "Beautiful Creatures," viewers are introduced to Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the teen daughter of a powerful family of Casters. Upon arriving in the town of Gatlin, Lena is immediately deemed an outcast due to her family's issues in previous towns. She does however find comfort in the arms of one mortal teen boy, Ethan Lawson Wate (Alden Ehrenreich). This relationship is strained though by the fact that not only is Lena a Caster and Ethan a mortal but Lena has a very big life change soon approaching.

As a Caster, when a girl turns 16, her powers are claimed for either the light or dark sides based on which is deemed true in her heart, good or evil. For Lena, this claiming is coming in only a matter of days. While her father, Macon (Jeremy Irons), is trying to help Lena towards the light side, Sarafine (Emma Thompson), the most powerful dark Caster of all, will stop at nothing to claim Lena for the dark side. Viola Davis and Emmy Rossum co-star in the film.

If something more a bit close to reality is more your pace, there are plenty of other movies in theaters at the same time including "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," "Identity Thief," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," "Stand Up Guys," "Warm Bodies," "Bullet to the Head," "Movie 43," "Django Unchained," "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," and "Silver Linings Playbook."

    She's More Powerful Than Either of Us

    Macon: "Sarafine"
    Sarafine: "The curse has already begun."
    Macon: "Lena will not turn dark. She's too strong."
    Sarafine: "She's going to be more powerful than either of us. She will lead us all…"
    Macon: "Toward what?!"
    Sarafine: "Mortals have run things for long enough. Lena will put an end to them."

    Arguing over whether Lena will be claimed by the light or the dark, Macon and Sarafine have differing opinions of what is best for Lena. For Sarafine, this best path involves world domination.

    I Like You

    Ethan: "I like you."
    Lena: "You don't now anything about me. You don't know who I really am inside. I don't know who I'll be."

    Ethan is initially smitten with Lena but Lena on the other hand has her reservations about opening up to him. She knows her life is different from his, her being a Caster and him a mortal, and she knows that means she cannot have a normal relationship with him.

    You Want to Be a Normal Human?

    Video: YouTube

    Ethan: "Really, is this necessary? I'm agreeing with you. Okay, I'm just a dumbass mortal who can't make his own thunder but I know there's no way we're going to figure this out is if you stop feeling so damn sorry for yourself all the time."
    [Lena screams]
    Ethan: "Go ahead. Start an earthquake. See where it gets you. Everybody has to deal with s*** in their lives, Lena."
    Lena: "What are you yelling at me for?"
    Ethan: "You want to be a normal human? What do you think that is? We don't have powers to just change things whenever we like. Being human is feeling bad. It's feeling pissed off. It's feeling scared and not being able to do anything about it until you don't feel that way anymore, until you can just see your way out of it. And I yelled at you because I care about you. That's what normal people do when they love each other when one of them is acting like a brat. Now would you please stop raining on me."

    The differences between Lena, a Caster, and Ethan, a mortal, are exemplified as both deal with a stressful situation. Ethan deals by yelling at Lena while Lena goes a bit bigger by creating a thunderstorm.

    If She Goes Dark

    Video: YouTube

    Ridley: "If she goes dark, will you shut her out too? You think Lena's a good girl now, but it won't matter. You think you can keep Lena the same? Wasn't I so good, so innocent before I was claimed? And look at what I am now."

    Clearly a wee bit butthurt about her own claiming, Ridley gets a bit nasty at a family dinner. Ridley was sweet and innocent before her claiming then afterwards everything changed, and not for the better.
