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."

Lena: "I collect poetry. I'm not meant to show a mortal any of this."
Ethan: "Tt's okay"
Lena: "No, I shouldn't have… You know, I just hate hiding all the time, feeling like everybody's whispering about me, people finding out I'm this freak. Sometimes I just want to be normal… What are you smiling at?"

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."
