Blue-haired tweener Coraline, neglected by her parents, discovers an "Other World" at the other end of a corridor in her bedroom where doubles of everyone she knows exist, only with button eyes instead of real ones. Her parents are loving, her neighbors young and a friendly cat talks. However, the reality is much more sinister, and she ends up fighting for not only her freedom, but that of her parents and other children living as ghosts. Superbly imaginative adaptation of the Neil Gaman novel, with a creepiness that approaches David Lynch.
