Did You Know?

[first lines]
Suzy:When people visit Sunshine Hills, they comment on the beauty, and the serenity. What they don't talk about, is the real theater resides in our minds. I recall the exact moment that our fear was born. It started when the teenage girls in our neighborhood were being abducted. And number 46 - the *bad* house, with an equally dubious history of rape, and murder - very few tenants.

The dark side of suburban life, 6 March 2009
Author: Swift_exit from Australia

despite a few comparisons to 'American beauty' and Blue velvet' this film is definitely not in the same league as those is however a well constructed thriller from first time director Dean O'Flaherty.'Beautiful' shows us the secrets that hide behind what appears to be a normal suburban town in Adelaide and how the main character is determined to find the truth no matter how dark things might really be.Apparently this film was made on a low budget but the cinematography and acting by the cast is so impressive that you don't even notice.I thought the film loses steam near the end but overall this is a unique film that deserves to be seen by a mainstream audience.7 out of ten.
