Film: Heavenly Creatures

Added to MyNight

Auditorium, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki

Dark, stylish, and captivating, Heavenly Creatures came from screen writer Fran Walsh’s long fascination with the Parker-Hulme case where two teenagers who invented imaginary worlds and wrote under imaginary personas murdered Pauline Parker’s mother in June 1954.  The film received Oscar nominations, deals with Miramax and signaled the debut of Kate Winslet, Melaine Lynskey and the arrival of Peter Jackson as more than just a cult director.

Take time to view Ann Shelton’s photographs of the murder scene in her exhibition Dark Matter, on level 2.
