Win It Wednesday - Death Becomes Her Feature by Jennifer Rhodes Cleere & Melanie Newton PLUS Giveaway!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be human yet stay young forever? Well this movie kind of tells you that...but with a twist. It’s about two women who marry the same guy, not at the same time of course, but at different intervals because he’s only interested in beautiful, young women. Yes, the movie I’m talking about is Death Becomes Her.
When I first found this movie, I wasn’t so sure I’d enjoy it, but boy was I wrong. It takes the "I want to be young forever" and turns it around. Yes, these two women got their wish but a wish that came at a horrible price. One I’m betting most people wouldn’t want to pay because I know I definitely wouldn’t.
It also teaches that inner beauty is always better than outer beauty. This movie is older so hopefully you’ve already seen it, but if you somehow haven’t I highly recommend it, if not for anything else but just for the amazing message it has at the end.
Jennifer Rhodes Cleere met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
I love a black comedy and when you have Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis, and Goldie Hawn in staring roles, you know you are in for a treat. Who wants to live forever? There’s ALWAYS a con with that question, but unlike most creature transformations, this movie takes a rather different approach, the biggest catch being THERE’S NO SUPERNATURAL HEALING!
Throw in Isabella Rossellini for a little added glam, and this really is a recipe for success. I really don't think there is another movie I could compare it too, but I definitely feel that it is a gem that is often overlooked.
Definitely not a movie that takes itself too seriously, but as Jenn already said, a strong message about beauty coming from within! (Also not to take stuff for granted!) If you haven't seen it - you should!
