A Tale to Swoon Over

Claire Danes in the major motion picture of Stardust, based on Neil Gaiman's novel

Neil Gaiman’s Stardust is delightful.  A lovely little fairy tale for grown ups, the adventure sucks you through a wall into a magical world of falling stars, unicorns, witches, spells, and flying ships.  Gaiman provides all the adults in the room a Faerie romance we can swoon over without re-reading Cinderella and Thumbelina for the hundred-thousandth time.  We get a handsome Romeo, a bit of a love triangle, true-love from the stars, and a happy ending (even if it goes out with a limp – literally).  Stardust made for a wonderful wintery read by the fireplace this Christmas.
