movie review....

Yesterday we took my nephew to the movies for his 14th birthday.
What we saw was a movie full of magic, intriguing characters,
amazing scenery, beautiful costumes and colours,
and a fantastic storyline steeped in history and mystery.
Plus it was all in 3D!
If you want to escape for a few hours to the wonderful world 
of Martin Scorsese, I urge you to see this film...
Adventure, old books, Paris, train stations, clocks, film history, magicians...it's all here...

This movie is based on a really wonderful book that I gave to a little 10 year old friend of mine a couple of years ago. She and I are planning to see the film this week. If you can find the book it is worth the price. Your nephew would like it, I think.

my daughter and i went a couple weeks ago (i see a movie about once a year, so what a delight!)...this movie was captivating, wasn't it! the settings and the interminglings were wonderful. and i am glad to hear the book is good, i will track it down.
