I think the movie is the best movie ever because it tells about Susie Salmon who got murder by her family's neighbor, George Harvey. Mr. Harvey lures Susie into a hole he dug in the cornfield.When she tries to leave he rips off her clothes, gags her with her hat and rapes her.her name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. she was fourteen when she was murdered on December 6, 1973.When Susie leaves Earth, she touches Ruth Connors, a school friend, and Ruth becomes obsessed with her. Mr. Harvey collapses the underground room where he raped and killed Susie. Then he puts her "body parts in a bag, which he puts in his garage, while he goes up for a shower.Mr. George Harvey is a rapist and a serial killer who raped and murdered Susie Salmon after he lured her. in the end Susie Salmon said have a happy life.

Your envisioned perception of "closure" is nothing but pure vengeance, of which you are not getting from this movie, or movies like this. This movie is about grief, it's about finding peace, and it's about how we need to stop having these disgusting killers get more screen time than the actual victims. Which many of you need to hear and which is why the killer is never caught, instead ends up dying alone, unknown, and forgotten, which should happen. If you want a movie where the girl gets saved, the man gets murdered, and there's vengeance. This is not the movie for you.
This is one of those movies that makes you really care about the characters. I cried a LOT during it, and I like movies that make me cry, as long as it ends well. The ending was just terrible! Susie cared more about kissing a boy than getting justice! When she was talking the boy at the end she could have told him about how her murderer was about tho roll her body into the sinkhole. I just really hate that Mr. Harvey didn't get killed or arrested for what he had done to all those girls.
