If there is a film to restore your faith in the movies it has to be Stardust.A boy makes a promise to cross The Wall and bring back a falling star – but he isn’t the only one looking for it and the star isn’t exactly a chunk of rock.
Stardust is a modern fairy tale, which produces clichés then deals with them with a big dose of common sense.
It has everything that a fairy tale needs; a quest mixed with a love story, villains that are more misguided than evil and pirates who owe a little nod to Johnny Depp.
There are stellar performances throughout.
I really can’t praise it enough. It really is what a blockbuster should be.
