A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars,
or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really… "Do
the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.

And, so begins the unlikely, and incredibly inventive tale that is
Stardust.

Stardust begins with a young man named Dunstan Thorne (palayed by Ben
Barnes, one year before his breakout role as Prince Caspian in the
second Chornicales of Narnia film) lives in a town in England known as
Wall, for the stone wall that has surrounded the town for 150 years. No
one knows what lies beyond the wall, because no one has ever gone
beyond the confinement. But, Dunstan Thorne breaks that streak, by
venturing beyond the wall, and into the magical realm known as
Stormhold. While there, he meets a beautiful woman who he has a short,
but memorable affair with. He then returns to Wall, but 9 months later,
the elderly gate watchman (David Kelly) arrives at Dunstan's home with
a baby, which he claims belongs to Dunstan. The young boy is named
Tristan (played as an adult by Charlie Cox). Tristan is smitten with
the beautiful Victoria (Seienna Miller), who is dating an asshole named
Humphrey. One night, Tristan gets his wish of spending more than a few
seconds in with his true love.

Meenwhile, the King of Stormhold (Peter O'Toole) lays on his death bed.
3 of his seven sons still remain alive, because the only remaining one
is crowned king after their father dies. Two brothers (Rupert Everet
and Mark Strong) plot the death of the third brother by pushing home
out the castle window. The King tells the two remaining brothers that
the first one to retrieve his necklace will be crowned king. He then
chucks the necklace into the sky.

The necklace hurtles through space, knocking a star out of the sky. The
star crashes to Earth, but not before it's seen by Tristian and
Victoria. The two make a bet that if Tristian can go beyond the wall
and return the star before Victoria's birthday, in a week, then the two
will be married.

Using a strange candle given to him by his mother, called a Babylon
Candle, which posses the power to transport a person hundreds of miles
in the blink of an eye, Tristain ends up in the middle of a crater,
with a strange girl. The girl, named Yvaine (Claire Danes) turns out to
the human form of the fallen star. The two set out on the 100 mile
journey back to Stormhold.

Along the way, they encounter a cast of quirky character including a
witch (played by Michelle Pheifer) who is obsessed with looking young,
a band of lightning collecting pirates lead by Captain Shakespeare
(Robert De Nero), and a black market trader named Ferdy (Ricky
Gervais.)

For those who did not see this film when it opened in theaters back in
2007, simply because it looked like a fairy tale, you missed out on one
of the most entertaining films of the decade. Yes, it is a fairy tale,
but, overall, it is simply an epic fantasy, albeit an epic fantasy
where you know that the two main characters are going to get married in
the end, director Mathew Vaughn, who made his directorial debut in 2004
with the mob thriller, Layer Cake, starring Daniel Craig, and most
recently directed Kick-Ass with Chloe Moretz and Nick Cage, takes some
interesting paths in arriving at that point. It wasn't hard for me to
fall in love with this movie, which Vaughn adapted from the Neal Gaiman
novel of the same name.

The movie truly captures the atmosphere and concept of a fairy tale. I
haven't read the book so I can't say much about it being close to the
original, but it really captures the feeling you had as a child when
you were read fairy tales. The empathy you have with the characters
truly keeps you wondering what will happen next! Knowing Hollywood
they'll throw loads of money in special effects and gloat when the
audiences stare at the pretty colors and awe, so i can't say much about
that. But the overall feel of the film is full of emotion, with
unexpected twists that keep you glued to the screen. Those moments just
make you feel love, compassion, sorrow, hate… taking you back to a
warm bed where the world was so small you could touch the edges with
your spread arms, and the words written on the pages of fairy tales
really made you hold your breath.
