Beautiful Creatures: Get The Look

May 22, 2012

Beautiful Creatures is set in the sleepy Southern town of Gatlin, South Carolina where nothing ever happens. But, beneath the surface, there are strange and magical forces, rooted in the past, that are about to re-emerge in ways the townspeople can’t even begin to imagine. That dance between the Caster and Mortal world is not only one of Light and Dark but of the past and present, all of which weaves an intricate adventure that impacts the future.

Lena Duchannes - Alice Englert

Lena Duchannes, the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood.  Lena is a Caster who possesses supernatural powers. She longs to break free from a family curse as she turns 16 and faces The Claiming…and being chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark.  Lena wants to be a normal teen and live a normal life, despite being anything but.

Although the ultimate connection is a mystery, one thing is clear: the moment Ethan and Lena meet, their bond is immediate, and so strong it unleashes another kind of storm altogether—a disturbance between powerful Light and Dark forces that have held a fragile, dormant truce in this Southern town for generations.

Ethan Wate – Alden Ehrenreich

Ethan Wate, a high school senior, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger—and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.

Ethan wants to break free from his small town and escape Gatlin’s stagnant existence.  But Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes. Although he is on the Varsity team and one of the popular kids, and Link is more of an outcast, they share the bond of having lost a parent.

Ridley Duchannes – Emmy Rossum

The Dark Caster Ridley Duchannes is a Siren who can get others to do her bidding. The nature of Ridley’s character—embodying different stylized looks and intention often without dialogue—could easily be daunting. All Ridley wants to do is stir up trouble.

Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine – Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson plays the conservative town crier who is also the mother of Ethan’s best friend, Link. At the other end of the spectrum, Thompson, performing double duty, plays the role of Sarafine, a Dark Caster who is trying her best to stir up the nefarious forces in Gatlin. To say that Mrs. Lincoln is a Bible thumper would be an understatement.

Amma – Viola Davis

Amma had been Ethan’s mother’s best friend and had promised to watch out for Ethan when his mother passed away. While not a Caster, Amma is a Seer and has her own fears about a union between these two young people. Amma is the town librarian, and has her own mysterious connection to the spirit world,

Macon Ravenwood – Jeremy Irons

Macon Ravenwood is the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. He has a style, a wit and a bit of mystery. Though Macon had been Claimed by the Dark in his youth, he has been trying to suppress his true nature for the sake of Lena, his niece.

Link

Link is Ethan’s wingman on the journey with this remarkable girl. They’ve been best friends since they were little kids and have gone through a lot, they share the same mentality. And he will draw on whatever powers, Light or Dark, to protect her.

I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!

i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
