In this stop-motion animation Oscar nominee, curious young Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning) unlocks a door in her family's home and is transported to a universe that strangely resembles her own -- only better. But when her Other Mother (Teri Hatcher) doesn't want Coraline to return to reality, our heroine must summon an amazing amount of courage to go home and save her family.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This dark and unsettling fairy tale explores all kinds of childhood fears starting with separation anxiety, but the real achievement here is the visual panache. This is another stop-motion cartoon treat for fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas.
