Teenager Ethan Wate is obsessed with his urge to finish high school and go on to college in order to leave the small town of Gatlin, South Carolina behind, until a mysterious girl begins to inhabit his dreams. When he meets Lena Duchannes, a newcomer who has just enrolled in his school, Ethan knows she is the girl in his dreams. Lena is rejected by the rest of her classmates for being the granddaughter of Macon Ravenwood, whom the town's superstitious residents consider to be a devil-worshiper. But Ethan gives her a ride anyway and they fall in love. Lena reveals to her new boyfriend that she is a witch, and that on her sixteenth birthday she will be claimed by either the forces of light or of darkness. She will remain in the light, but only if she does not remain in love with Ethan. To make matters worse, her evil mother, Sarafine, is casting spells to push Lena to the dark side. Ethan joins her in a search to find a magic spell to save their doomed love. Will the lovers succeed? Written by

The Caster Chronicles have some nominal similarities to the Twilight Saga, e.g. they're both set in a small town; a relationship between a human and a supernatural being; the human drawn into a vampire/witch war with their families, etc. But the two series have their differences as well, e.g. the novel Beautiful Creatures pointedly says there are no such things as vampires and werewolves, both of which appear in the Twilight Saga; Stephenie Meyer promoted chastity and the sanctity of marriage, while Beautiful Creatures favours tolerance and understanding of anything different, etc. See more »
When Lena and Ethan go to the movies you can overhear Ethan introducing her to Link before Ethan pays, but Link isn't there until later. However, a deleted scene shows that introduction. See more »

Im 33 years old and probably not in the main-group for this movie (teengirls maybe). But me and my friend got a free ticket and went for this movie we would normally not had seen.
But i was charmed. The young actors played well, was cute and had chemistry together. We smiled many times, and the effects was good. The story was OK, and i have never read the story this movie is build on.
This is a good movie i think, and probably they will make more movies so we see how the story will go. I found it fun with the southern small town fun of religious narrowness. And the fight between good and evil is a fight in many of the fantasy-movies, and that was a red line in this movie and worked good.
Fun also to see Emma Thompson, she did a awesome actor-work.
