About Beautiful Creatures
Fantasy drama about the strange attraction between two teenagers in a Southern town. Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) has recurring dreams about a mysterious young girl. He approaches her on a Civil War battlefield, only to be struck by lightning. His everyday life in the conservative town of Gatlin is a lot less exciting, as everyone is settled in their ways and they don't take kindly to strangers. Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert) isn't quite a stranger as her uncle is reclusive local Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons) who lives in a Gothic mansion, but her arrival causes shockwaves of rumour through the community and Ethan is drawn to her. She possesses magical powers but is in danger of falling victim to an ancient curse.
