Critics: “Lovely Bones is a touching, at times distressing film. It deals with loss, grief, rage, familial breakdown and love, most of all love. But it’s also energetic and entertaining.” - Total Film
“A hard subject beautifully handled, with an artistry that makes The Lovely Bones a memorably intelligent and emotional experience.” Hollywood and Fine
“ The Lovely Bones does a fantastic job with revered, complex source material. As terrific on terra firma as it is audacious in its astral plane, it is doubtful we’ll see a more imaginative, courageous film in 2010.” - Empire Magazine
