If you haven’t seen the movie Heavenly Creatures, then I can’t recommend it enough.   You can judge for yourself if it was an obsessive friendship or the two were lovers.  Either way, Pauline and Juliet lived in a fantasy world where they were better than others and only were happy together.  When their reality was threatened, they decided to focus all of their fear and anger towards Pauline’s mother.  For such a horrific and tragic murder, I am in shock that the girls received only five years and new identities.  However, it seems that Pauline is still seeking redemption. Juliet, I am not so sure.

Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker murdered Juliet's mom when they thought she was trying to keep them apart
