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 niece 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.

There are several characters from the book that didn't make it into the movie - Macon's wolf/dog, Boo, Lena's little girl cousin, Ryan (who was a healer), Ethan's "Aunt" Marian (her character was combined with Amma), Ethan's great aunts (Prue, Grace, etc..), and his Father. These characters play significant roles in the novel. See more »
The town has less than 400 residents but has a football stadium that could easily hold over a thousand with a very expensive artificial turf field. See more »
My mom always said that people in Gatlin were either too stupid to leave or to stuck to move.

OK so I postponed watching this movie due to the harsh comments it had gotten from many people about how it wasn't worth watching and I have to say I completely disagree with them!
I watched this movie and loved the story and will admit even got sad/happy at points following the characters growth and change in the movie. It took me to a place that I had never thought about and I will say that, that is something when there are so many movies out these days.
For those who give it crap for not being like the book I do have to say that look at most any book to movie series i.e Harry Potter/Twilight/Hunger Games there are things that have to be left out or reworked in order for a movie to go through it will never be EXACTLY the same. Some things just don't work in the movie world.
Again I loved this movie and would love to see a sequel come out of it. (Yes I do plan on reading the book anyways.)
