The romantic drama Beautiful Creatures tells the story of 17-year-old Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), whose world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the niece of Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons), the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor.  Immediately drawn to each other, it becomes apparent that Lena is a Caster with powers beyond her control, and the two are faced with a curse that will claim her for either the Light or the Dark on her 16th birthday. At the film’s press day, actress Alice Englert, daughter of acclaimed filmmaker Jane Campion, talked about what ultimately convinced her to take the role, working with such a talented cast, how important the Southern setting was to this story, getting the accent right, not being worried about the Twilight comparisons, growing up on her mom’s film sets, and why she was compelled to be an actor. »
