Three sentence movie review: Beautiful Creatures

I’ve wanted to see this ever since I saw Emma Thompson doing a southern accent in the preview, but I was reminded of it recently because Alden Ehrenreich plays young Han Solo in the upcoming movie, and I wanted to do some catching up with him.* This movie was great fun, having all sorts of movie delights: small town, southern, good/evil witches, an important birthday, first love, big weather things. Both Ehrenreich and Alice Englert** were enjoyable in this Southern Gothic frippery.

Cost: Netflix subscription
Where watched: at home

*He was delightful as Hobie Doyle in Hail, Caesar!
**Ehrenreich & Englert!  Try saying that three times fast.
