About the Movie
A charmingly naïve boy from the English village of Wall travels to a magical, mythical world in search of the falling star that will help him win the heart of his true love in this fantasy adventure starring Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ricky Gervais, and Sienna Miller. For hundreds of years the massive cobblestone barrier that surrounds the sleepy English hamlet of Wall has kept the citizens of the village safe and secure from the malevolent supernatural forces that stir just outside its perimeter. When dashing Tristran Thorn (Cox) promises the fairest girl in the village, Victoria (Miller), that he will prove his love by bestowing her with a genuine falling star, his daring mission sends him on an adventure far outside the comfortable confines of Wall. In order to find the fallen star, Tristran will have to ascend the wall and venture deep into the forbidden heart of the fantastical realm known as Stormhold. Upon discovering that the meteorite he sought was in fact a beautiful girl named Yvaine (Danes), who has stumbled though space and is now being pursued by the King of Stormhold's (Peter O'Toole) sons (who long to use her cosmic powers to lay claim to the throne), Tristran vows to protect the otherworldly visitor at all costs. But the King's sons aren't the only ones in search of the luminous Yvaine; fearsome witch Lamia (Pfeiffer) has become convinced that the young girl's power can help her to achieve eternal youth and beauty. As Tristran makes his way through Stormhold on a mission to bring the star back to Wall, he will encounter a series of spectacular characters and creatures that will lead him to a fate he never imagined. Layer Cake director Matthew Vaughn serves as screenwriter and director for this tale of witches and pirates adapted from the novel by fantastic literature icon Neil Gaiman, who also produces.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Stardust lights up the screen with a splendid tale of heroism and romance. You don't have to be a fan of fantasies to enjoy its considerable whimsy.
Fresh: This luminous, magical movie will dazzle even the fantasy-film phobic.
Fresh: Like the star that falls to Earth near the beginning of the movie, Stardust is glittery and pretty and possesses its own pleasing-enough personality, but it won't set the world on fire.
Rotten: Stardust [feels] episodic and clunky, constantly straining for the impression of overall coherent design that Gaiman renders invisible.
Love This Movie!!!
This movie was one of the best I had seen in a long time. It had really good performances. It was funny. I could count the curse words on one hand. All around great movie.
Unusual Movie with Something For Everybody!
This is a fabulous movie! It has romance, suspense, action, humor, mystery, and adventure. I don't usually enjoy "fantasy" type stories, but this is an exceptional movie. The cast is great.... I honestly cannot say enough good things about this creative story that EVERYONE can enjoy!
I can't say enough good things about this movie. What at first glance seemed like one of those fantasy movies I wouldn't be able to get into, turned into the first fantasy movie I was ever drawn into. A really, really great story. Like I said, my words can't give it the credit it deserves. Rent or buy it, you won't be let down!
