Heavenly Creatures (1994) short review

Two teenage girls develop an INTENSE friendship in 1950s New Zealand. They develop a shared fantasy world, and when their parents threaten to separate them, things get SUPER-BEYOND-INTENSE. It’s based on a true story. I saw it once, it blew me away, and I could never watch it again because I’d be too traumatized. The Costumes: Nice 1950s wear, but nothing to jump up and down about. See it for the intense story and stunning acting by the two leads.
