Stardust Print
Written by Mike Noel

Stardust is a quirky, surreal fantasy adventure for a more grownup audience. The all stars sprinkled throughout (Ian McKellen, Peter O'Toole, Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes and Robert De Niro) manage to keep this movie from the campy feel that this genre so often gravitates towards. The slightly macabre and adult themes set this movie outside of something I want my young kids to watch; but for adults it has some fun moments.
The plot is fairly straight-forward. A star is knocked from the sky and lands in the magical land on the other side of "the wall". The young man at the center of the story watches the falling star and pledges to retrieve it to win the love of a girl who has caught his eye. At the same time three old witches, whose life is sustained by eating the heart of a star, see the fallen star as an opportunity to rejuvenate their significantly faded beauty and extend their lives. And finally, a dwindling group of princes chase after the star in hopes of winning the throne of their now deceased father.
With much of the cleverness of Harry Potter, but with a lot less adolescent spin, the three groups race across the magic land to find the star and win the prize. I won't spoil everything by telling you who wins.
It's a fun movie. A bit silly at times but still fun to watch.
