Coraline - H. Selick 2009

This animated story about a kooky - wonderfully expressive - girl and her parallel universe was a lot more unnerving than we had anticipated.

It was also a whole lot more poetic and clever, and it brought to light the fact that the accomplishment of 'A Nightmare Before Christmas' was due at least as much to director Selick as to writer / producer Tim Burton.

My film buff 9-year-old and myself were enthralled. And a little spooked.
