Stardust (2007)


Movie Review

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn

Starring: Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Robert De Niro

Behind the stone wall in the English village known as Wall lies a magical kingdom known as Stormhold.  Nobody crosses this wall for fear of what lies on the other side in this magical kingdom.  Dunstan Thorne (Ben Barnes) crosses the wall and meets a slave girl named Una (Kate Magowan).  Nine months after the trip across the wall, a baby boy named Tristan is delivered at his doorstep.  Nineteen years later, Tristan (Charlie Cox) lives an unremarkable life with his father Dunstan (Nathaniel Parker).  When a star falls in the kingdom of Stormhold and Tristan promises to gift this star to his love Victoria (Sienna Miller).  Little does he know that this task will lead him to his remarkable heritage, a remarkable love, and a remarkable life.

Stardust is a magical, romantic fantasy film with pirates, princes, and witches.  This heartfelt adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name lights up the big screen with a unique charm that will grab you and never let go.  Charlie Cox and Claire Danes have an undeniable chemistry that develops gradually throughout the film, while Michelle Pfeiffer, Peter O'Toole, and Robert De Niro fuel the film with the right dose of star power.  Stardust is a one-of-a-kind gem that anyone can enjoy.
