Absolutely brilliant film that helped launch the careers of Peter Jackson, Kate Winslet, and Melanie Lynskey. Pauline Parker's diary was used for the narration dialogue in the film. The story is about two girls who become friends and who quickly become obsessed with each other. Truly, the relationship seems sort of beautiful until it all goes horribly wrong. The lead actors are just amazing. Kate Winslet's character, Juliet, is based on real-life writer Anne Perry. Highly, highly recommend.
