About the Movie
A strange recurring dream haunts Ethan Wate in his sleep, but he prefers anything to his waking life. Trapped in a small, conservative Southern town with his withdrawn father, Ethan desperately wants to escape. Then the beautiful Lena Duchannes arrives at his school, and mysterious events begin to occur. Lena has a secret: she is a Caster with powers beyond her control. Worse, when she reaches her 16th birthday, she will be claimed by either the Light or the Dark . . . and there is no escaping her fate in this supernatural love story.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As supernatural types, Oscar winners Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson overact so strenuously and with such outrageously awful Southern accents that you fear the damage this crock may do to their reputations.
Fresh: This surprisingly beguiling attempt to blend fantasy, coming-of-age drama, melodrama, camp and social critique isn't always successful - but it's nearly always entertaining.
Rotten: The movie is claimed ... by narrative incoherence, Tim Burton-envy and the usual demons of digital effects.
Fresh: This fantasy about witches and warlocks walking among us was clearly produced for the Twilight crowd, but a witty script and the enjoyably hammy performances from Emma Thompson and Jeremy Irons broaden its appeal.
why is the trailer in french. has anyone rented this to find out if it is the french version that gets rented??? please review and let us know! I am not going to rent until they fix it. this happens quite often!!
Trailer is in French
The trailer is in French. Is this the correct trailer for the movie title and iTunes just goofed up and put the French version.
Hopefully it when the movie is released it will be in English, because it looks good.
So for now the rating I give is a 2-star.
Books are way better
Movie was such a let down! The books were beyond amazing, I was so disappointed when I walked out of the movie theatre. You will most likely enjoy the movie if you haven't read the books. Important characters are missing, plots are changed, parts of all 4 books are in this movie. Basically the last 3rd of the movie is a completely different story. Only good thing, the actors did a phenomenal job.
