Beautiful Creatures

A watchable thriller, about two abused gangsters’ molls (Rachel Weisz and Susan Lynch) in Glasgow who join forces to save their own skins. It isn’t exactly Thelma & Louise, but it periodically recalls that picture, and arguably goes some distance beyond it in making virtually all its male characters apart from a likable dog named Pluto brutal scumbags who deserve everything they get. Writer and coproducer Simon Donald offers an efficient plot, and director Bill Eagles knows how to pace the actors and action while delivering it. With Tom Mannion, Maurice Roeves, and Iain Glen. 86 min. (JR)
