Based on the worldwide bestselling Young Adult book series, “Fallen” is seen through the eyes of Lucinda “Luce” Price, a strong-willed 17-year-old living a seemingly ordinary life until she is accused of a crime she didn’t commit.
Sent off to the imposing Sword & Cross reform school, Luce finds herself being courted by two young men to whom she feels oddly connected.
Isolated and haunted by strange visions, Luce begins to unravel the secrets of her past and discovers the two men are fallen angels, competing for her love for centuries. Luce must choose where her feelings lie, pitting Heaven against Hell in an epic battle over true love.
“Fallen” is directed by award-winning Australian director Scott Hicks.
Author Lauren Kate was inspired to write the “Fallen” novels by the romance in the story of fallen angels giving up their place in heaven for the untested love of human women that appears in Genesis.
“As a romantic, I wanted to write a story from the point of view of a girl who made that love worthwhile,” she said. “The idea of a love that has cosmic consequences and that addresses deep betrayals and big motivations has always reached me deeply, and I’m happy that they reached others through my books.
“Luce has an obsession with making impossible love possible. She falls in love with Daniel, but that love dies, and she’s desperate to break the curse because she believes the love is worth it. Her openness and deep faith in the power of love is her defining characteristic. Luce is lost when we meet her and every day is an obstacle but Daniel is a ray of light even though he acts badly. She makes her world about him. It’s a deep faith in love that’s very admirable.”
Published in 2009, “Fallen” introduced a group of memorable characters and a compelling romance that spanned the eras and enthralled young adults around the world.
The series—“Fallen,” “Torment,” “Passion,” “Rapture” and the “Fallen in Love” collection of novellas set in the Middle Ages—has become a smash hit with over 10 million copies sold. —CONTRIBUTED
