Aiming to be the next "Twilight," director Richard LaGravenese's ("P.S. I Love You") take on the best-seller by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl doesn't quite get there, but it still has striking visuals and a very strong supporting cast.
Alice Englert plays a literally magical newcomer to a South Carolina town, where a classmate's (Aiden Ehrenreich) unusual sense of connection to her eventually becomes clear. Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum and Eileen Atkins also star. DVD extras: deleted scenes. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
