Director Matthew Vaughn (LOCK, STOCK, AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS)
takes his experience with credible crime capers and applies it to
the fantasy genre in this charming but not too precious adaptation
of Neil Gaimans novel. The many threads of the story intertwine
seamlessly, unfolding at an unforced pace that complements the
movie's magical special effects. Charlie Cox (CASANOVA) stars as
Tristan, a somewhat bumbling shopkeepers assistant in the sleepy
English village of Wall, so named for the stone barrier that
separates it from the magical realm of Stormhold. Tristan is in
love with the beautiful, dismissive Victoria (Sienna Miller), who
much prefers her other suitor, Humphrey (Henry Cavill), since he
has traveled all the way to Ipswich to buy her an engagement ring.
Tristan, in a last-ditch effort to win Victorias affections, offers
to bring her a fallen star theyve just seen, and she agrees to
marry him if he can deliver.
Unbeknownst to Tristan, he is the product of his fathers
(Nathaniel Parker) sole excursion to Stormhold, where he had a
tryst with a mysterious slave girl (Kate Magowan) who said she was
a princess. As Tristan retraces his fathers steps he discovers that
the "star" is actually a beautiful young woman named Yvaine (Claire
Danes) . A trio of witches, led by a delightfully wicked Michelle
Pfeiffer, wants to capture Yvaine to cut out her heart and gain
eternal youth, while the three remaining sons of the recently
deceased king (Peter OToole) compete with one another to find the
gem Yvaine wears around her neck. With special effects that never
outshine the performances and a sweet story peppered with hints of
Gaimans dark sensibility, STARDUST is a truly enchanting fairy
