The Lovely Bones

Kiwi filmmaker Peter Jackson tackles Alice Sebold's runaway best seller about a young teen who watches her murder investigation unfold from Heaven. The cast (including Saoirse Ronan, Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Stanley Tucci and Susan Sarandon) is impressive, and Jackson summons up some trippy after-death imagery. But the toned-down script conjures flashbacks of that pretty-but-vapid Robin Williams film What Dreams May Come. 135 minutes PG-13.
