In 1952, New Zealand was shocked by the murder of Honora Parker by her teenage daughter and a schoolfriend. Despite director Peter Jackson's back catalogue in slapstick gore – Braindead, Bad Taste – Heavenly Creatures does not dwell on the more lurid details of the crime. Instead, it examines the imaginative fantasy worlds of the girls and the strength of their friendship in a sympathetic light.
