Heavenly Creatures (1994)

New Zealand director Peter Jackson (DEAD ALIVE, BAD TASTE) recounts the
real-life story of two schoolgirls (Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynske)
whose "unhealthy" friendship led to terrible, tragic results
in 1954.  Using excerpts from one of their diaries, Jackson follows the
girls into their own breathtaking world of fantasy and denial.

Mesmerizing, heartbreaking stuff, if you don't mind the frantic camera
work and poor lighting.  Remarkable acting by Winslet and Lynskey, as
well.  Complain loud enough to the management of the Chelsea (in Chapel
Hill) and maybe you can even see it in focus!

Grade: A-
