by immortal power
near or far
to each other
hiddenly linked are.
That thou cans't not stir a flower
without troubling a star.
That's what 19th-century British poet Francis Thompson wrote in verses that could have been the epigraph to Stardust, Matthew Vaughn's entertaining and sometimes enthralling adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Victorian fantasy about a troubled star.
