Not true to the book.
OK! So first of all I read Beautiful Creatures and watch the movie right after I was done with the book. The movie poorly summarized the connection between characters and sped and skipped so many things. Many things did not happen to make a shorter movie and there was barley a connection between Ethan and Lena, let alone ANYONE ELSE! I had a very difficult time enjoying the movie. By the way, to the movie director, Ridley, my favorite character fell in love with Link even if she was using him. That showed importance to show you still feel when you've turned dark. Also, the movie did not portray anything about the father. The absence of his father affected Ethan in many was and taking that out was unacceptable. YOU ALSO DID NOT SHOW HOW BULLYING AFFECTED LENA! That was one of the freaking morals of the story! Bullying affects people! I'm just going to say this movie took out parts that made the book a good book.
PS The bubbles are not working and I say don't go.
