The best character from Peter Jackson's "purgatory is pretty" film Lovely Bones is by far Susan Sarandon's nicotine powered, boozed up 1970s grandma. And now a new clip showcases Sarandon in action.


Through the midst of this heartbreaking work, one character stands out as the trouble yet hilarious family member, thank goodness they got Susan Sarandon...


Plus she also helps capture the feel of the 70s, or in her case the 60s, that this movie is beautifully set in. Here's another video that properly breaks down the family dynamic and the tragedy that befalls the Salmon family. The Lovely Bones, which is based off of Alice Sebold's novel, comes out in limited release Dec. 11 and wider release on Dec. 25.

I really loved the book. When I finished reading it I gave it to my mother. She nearly read it in one sitting. Only thanksgiving dinner interrupted her.
