My Throwback this week is…
Stardust (2007) starring Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeifer, and Robert DeNiro
Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman
Because I am tired, here’s the Goodreads synopsis:
Hopelessly crossed in love, a boy of half-fairy parentage leaves his mundane Victorian-English village on a quest for a fallen star in the magical realm. The star proves to be an attractive woman with a hot temper, who plunges with our hero into adventures featuring witches, the lion and the unicorn, plotting elf-lords, ships that sail the sky, magical transformations, curses whose effects rebound, binding conditions with hidden loopholes and all the rest.
I’ll be honest – I haven’t read the book (YET), but I loved this movie. It’s sweet and inventive and beautiful. It’s fantasy at its best, and I hope you enjoy it.
This is a blog hop! Link your Throwback Thursday post below!
This movie is one of my favourites! I loved every part of it 😀 I read the book as well. Neil Gaiman is such an amazing author.
I haven’t read the book either. Carl V. is doing a read-through in April . I’m thinking about it.
I’ve never read a book by Neil Gaiman yet. One day if I ever get caught up on my review pile I hope to. Wow an all star cast! Sounds awesome. I added it to my netflix queue. I’m looking forward to getting it. Thanks for sharing!
