Inspired by a question from emmzzi, I just took the parents to see Stardust. It was a bit tricky to find a cinema within a reasonable driving distance that was still showing it, but it was well worth the effort. What a brilliant film! Quite possibly the best one I've seen this year. It's a sort of romantic fantasy adventure tale with a fair bit of comedy thrown in too (it compares favourably to The Princess Bride). Kids of all ages will love it and there's plenty there for adults too. Claire Danes as the Fallen Star is absolutely wonderful. If you haven't seen it in the cinema yet, better hurry because the run has almost finished.
