The fantasy film Stardust is a fun ride. A quest story that has everyone chasing a star that has fallen to earth. Witches, lightning chasing pirates and a would-be king all have their reasons for wanting the star. The story lines are clear, and a small twist at the end made this a very satisfying film for me. There is a nice dose of comedy that keeps the tone light. The performances were great, Robert Dinero makes a great pirate, Michele Pfiefer a wicked witch and Claire Danes a charming star. Keep an eye out for the "ghost gallery", they were my favorite!
