Hey, movie-loving friends. I’ve got a recommendation for you. I just watched Inkheart , and I want to recommend it to you. Here is the Netflix description:
Unbeknownst to his 12-year-old daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett), bookbinder Mo “Silvertongue” Folchart (Brendan Fraser) has a secret ability to bring characters to life by reading their stories out loud. But when the wicked Capricorn (Andy Serkis) comes after her father, Meggie must rescue him. Based on the best-selling children’s novel by Cornelia Funke, this enchanting fantasy co-stars Paul Bettany, Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.
What a fun fairy tale of a movie! I was enchanted. I loved all the characters, and I particularly appreciated Jim Broadbent in the role of the author of the book, Inkheart, who wants to enter his imaginary world for real. I hadn’t heard about the children’s novel, so the story itself was totally new and fresh for me, and I didn’t miss whatever was left out (as something always is in a movie).
I want my young grandchildren to see this, so now I’m off to complete my order on Amazon.
