    presents a newly re-mastered DVD and Blu-Ray release of Peter Jackson's


    Starring Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey 

    "Startling. Exhilarating. Dazzling." - Variety
    "Visionary Triumph" - Rolling Stone



    It was the film that put Peter Jackson on the international film circuit. It was the film that rocketed Kate Winslet to fame. It was the film based on a crime that shocked a nation. Discover the darkly hypnotic and fantastical world of Heavenly Creatures.

    Pauline is a student in New Zealand who has no affection for her family or her classmates, but when the beautiful and wealthy Juliet enrols at her school the pair become best friends. Through their shared tastes in art, literature, and music they begin to build an elegant fantasy world. However, when Juliet's parents threaten to separate the girls, they make a ruthless pact to preserve their fairytale forever, whatever the cost...

    One of the most talked about and critically acclaimed films of 1994, Heavenly Creatures was the winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival, was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards and was included in The Guardian and Time Magazine's top ten lists of that year. Critics hailed Kate Winslet as Britain's new acting talent, singling out her mesmerising portrayal of school girl Juliet Hulme. Much praise was also directed at Peter Jackson, until then known for kitsch horror movies, for his visionary and distinctive directing skills, paving the way for his epic three part adaptation of Lord Of The Rings. Now a newly

    re-mastered version of this cult classic will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD from September 12th.

    Starring Academy-Award winner Kate Winslet (Titanic), Melanie Lynskey (Up In The Air) and directed by Academy-Award winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Heavenly Creatures is a gripping and vividly imagined account of friendship with a dark edge.
