Heavenly Creatures is a 1994 New Zealand biographical psychological drama movie directed by Peter Jackson and starring Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey in their motion picture debuts, with Sarah Peirse, Diana Kent, Clive Merrison, and Simon O’Connor in supporting roles. Based on the infamous Parker–Hulme murder case in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1954, the film follows the friendship of two adolescent girls, Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme, which leads to the death of Parker’s mother. The events of the movie take place between their first meeting in 1952 and their murder in 1954.
The film premiered at the 51st Venice International Film Festival in 1994, winning the Silver Lion and becoming one of the year’s most well-received pictures. Most aspects of the production were acclaimed by critics, with special emphasis paid to the hitherto unknown Winslet and Lynskey’s performances, as well as Jackson’s directing. The movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
