STARDUST is an underrated adaptation of Gaiman’s fairy tale about a young man who ventures into a fantasy land in a vain attempt to impress the haughty village beauty. What he finds there is a damsel-in-distress who turns out to be a fallen star pursued by witches and princes alike. Directed by the seemingly unlikely choice of Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class), STARDUST actually reveals Vaughn’s deft hand with actors, even in the midst of swashbuckling action. He even gets Robert De Niro to drop “The De Niro” as he steals the show playing a (convincing) transvestite air-pirate.
