Dark secrets will come to light.
Based on the first book from the Caster Chronicle Series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the supernatural story of Beautiful Creatures comes to life on the big screen in a tangled and captivating love story.
In the quiet town of Gatlin, South Carolina, high school student Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) desperately looks toward a future where he can leave the conservative town behind. But he has a reoccurring dream of a mysterious and dangerous girl on a battlefield in town.
So when the enticing Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert) moves in with her uncle Macon Ravenwood, (Jeremy Irons)—the Boo Radley of the neighbourhood—Ethan is immediately intrigued. But the townspeople want Macon and Lena gone, because Lena is a caster or “witch.” As her 16th birthday approaches, so does the inevitable family curse where she may be lost to the dark forces. Can Ethan help her break the curse in time?
