Beautiful Creatures [DVD] [2000]

Release Date:10/02/2001
Bill Eagles' sexy, comedic thriller Beautiful Creatures comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials are limited to a theatrical trailer and production notes. This is an acceptable, though unspectacular release from Universal.

    Beautiful Creatures
    In this contemporary thriller set in Scotland, two women, Dorothy (Susan Lynch) and Petula (Rachel Weisz), bond over a dangerous encounter. Petula is being routinely beaten by her boyfriend Brian (Tom Mannion); Dorothy, after having left her unstable relationship with Tony (Iain Glen), accidentally kills Brian in a fit of rage. In desperation, the two women forge a bizarre scheme to convince Brian's older, more powerful brother Ronnie (Maurice Roeves) that Brian has been kidnapped. Their plan hits a snag, however, when Detective Inspector Hepburn (Alex Norton) begins to suspect the women and offers to be on the take for their intended get-rich plan. Soon after, Tony also re-emerges and also wants in on the deal, leaving the two women to compose a different plan. A blackly comic film noir, Beautiful Creatures is the feature debut of director Bill Eagles. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi
