Stuck in a Moment She Can’t Get Out of
One of the Decemberists I’m looking forward to the most is Peter Jackson’s long-awaited adaptation of Alice Sebold’s best-selling The Lovely Bones (out Dec. 11):
I really want to see Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) as Susie Salmon, the young girl who is sexually assaulted and murdered by her serial killer neighbor because I’m fairly confident she will anchor the movie beautifully.
(Stuck in the “in between,” Susie watches as her family members grieve her loss...and tries to prevent her sister from meeting the same awful fate.)
And I want to see Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz and Stanley Tucci in the film. Especially Tucci, who’s quietly and slowly generating some Best Supporting Actor buzz.
