Coraline moves to a new home out in the country. A curious girl that can not sit still, she looks for something exciting to do. But how exciting can life get when you live out in the middle of nowhere with some odd neighbours?
Her mother decides to show her daughter something so she can stop being a bother. This something? A tiny door, hidden in their house. But there is only bricks on the other side, for now...
Later, Coraline opens the mysterious door again. This time, there is a tunnel leading her into a whole new world. This can be Coraline's dream come true... or her worst nightmare.
After reading the graphic novel version of Coraline, I was eager to watch the movie. Unfortunately, I had to watch it on an Ipod of a classmate's in between my accounting classes. I didn't receive the full effects to enjoy the movie (cause I was trying not to get caught by my teacher), but it was definitely amazing.
But Coraline appears to be a little too scary for some kids, for I heard that parents had to remove their children from the theatres before. Although this is a children's movie, it may not be suitable for youngsters who are easily frightened.
Hauntingly beautiful, this 3D movie takes the audience to a universe of wonder and magic. It makes you eager, scared, and rooting for the protagonist to win the dangerous game she plays against her "other mother". It is a unique tale with a warning, "Be careful what you wish for...".
