As covetous children are often warned: "Be careful what you wish for." It’s this very cautionary wisdom that sets the stage for Henry Selick’s CORALINE, an eerily eye-popping stop-motion animation tale of fractured dreams and families made whole. As the films opens, Coraline Jones (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and her parents (Teri Hatcher, John Hodgman) have moved into the Pink Palace, a once-vibrant boarding house that’s turned drab and dilapidated. As her parents work feverishly on a new gardening catalog, the bored and belligerent Coraline is admonished to explore her new world’s possibilities. Along the way she meets her fellow tenants, including two aging English showgirls and a mouse-training Russian acrobat, as well as an outcast neighborhood boy named Wybie. But it is a mysterious hidden door that most piques Coraline’s interest--a gateway to a parallel world where her "other" parents and neighbors live only to see Coraline well fed and endlessly entertained. All is not cakes and carnivals for Coraline, though, and the black buttons that have replaced the eyes of these otherworldly imitations hint at darker intentions. When these intentions are revealed, Cora and a friendly magical cat use their wits and willpower to defeat Coraline’s wicked "other mother" and restore balance in the real world. Based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved children’s novel, director Selick (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) uses the stop-motion technique to bring CORALINE to life with amazing visual and emotional depth. The result is a frightfully magical adventure that will give the whole family plenty to shriek, cheer, and talk about.

  • Coraline = Awesomeness

    Coraline was an excellent movie! The animation was amazing -- similar to The Nightmare Before Christmas, but even higher quality. Coraline was a majorly creepy film (actually creepier than The Nightmare Before Christmas!) I imagine most older children could tolerate the scariness, but I wouldn't be taking the young kids to see this movie. This fantasy-filled film had funny, scary, and even profound moments. However, most importantly, the film told a good story. As an adult, I can sincerely say that the storyline kept me intrigued throughout the entirety of the movie. I genuinely cared about the final outcome of the characters. I'll leave my character commentary at this: most are not quite who they seem to be. Oh, and you will never look at dolls with button eyes QUITE the same way after watching Coraline. ; )

  • A thinking movie for children!

    Coraline is an amazing movie for kids, ages 8+. Between ages eight and ten I would watch with parents, though, as the child may have some questions afterward. It is DEFINITELY good though. It's all about being careful what you wish for and follows Coraline as she gets the world she wished for, only to find out it's not as good as it seems. There is minor nudity, but it is an old woman recreating the fine art piece 'the birth of venus' so it shouldn't be too bad.
