It's a challenge young Lena (Alice Englert) asks Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) when they first meet and when they say their goodbyes. On the surface it's a response to whether or not the book she's reading (a collection by Charles Bukowski) is worthwhile. On a deeper (but not too deep) level it comments on the true nature of a young woman born into a family of “casters cursed to the dark side.” But from my vantage point, that of a critic readying his review, it was a plea.
Now that 'Twilight' is all wrapped up, a slew of new franchises are hoping to pick up where it left off in the hearts of millions. The first contender in 2013 is 'Beautiful Creatures', Richard LaGravenese's adaptation of the popular Young Adult novel of the same name. An extended TV spot for the February release has come online, and you can embrace it after the break.
Young adult literature has become the hottest genre for Hollywood, and any book that spawns a sequel now seems lined up to be a film franchise. The latest film is 'Beautiful Creatures' and it's based on the novels by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and now there's a trailer.
