All things

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.

Stardust (Paramount) Starring Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro. Directed by Matthew Vaughn. Rated PG-13. Time 128 minutes.
