Editors Note
Note As covetous children are often warned: "Be careful what you wish for." It?s this very cautionary wisdom that sets the stage for Henry Selick?s CORALINE, an eerily eye-popping stop-motion animation tale of fractured dreams and families made whole. As the films opens, Coraline Jones (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and her parents (Teri Hatcher, John Hodgman) have moved into the Pink Palace, a once-vibrant boarding house that?s turned drab and dilapidated. As her parents work feverishly on a new gardening catalog, the bored and belligerent Coraline is admonished to explore her new world?s possibilities. Along the way she meets her fellow tenants, including two aging English showgirls and a mouse-training Russian acrobat, as well as an outcast neighborhood boy named Wybie. But it is a mysterious hidden door that most piques Coraline?s interest--a gateway to a parallel world where her "other" parents and neighbors live only to see Coraline well fed and endlessly entertained. All is not cakes and carnivals for Coraline, though, and the black buttons that have replaced the eyes of these otherworldly imitations hint at darker intentions. When these intentions are revealed, Cora and a friendly magical cat use their wits and willpower to defeat Coraline?s wicked "other mother" and restore balance in the real world. Based on Neil Gaiman?s beloved children?s novel, director Selick (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) uses the stop-motion technique to bring CORALINE to life with amazing visual and emotional depth. The result is a frightfully magical adventure that will give the whole family plenty to shriek, cheer, and talk about.

Box Office "[Selick] stays at child's eye level, letting the 3D process subtly reinforce how a youngster's imagination can be more vivid and real than reality itself." 02/06/2009
New York Times "[A]n exquisitely realized 3-D stop-motion animated feature....CORALINE lingers in an atmosphere that is creepy, wonderfully strange and full of feeling." 02/06/2009
Variety "Everyone's in love with someone in HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU, a not-quite-romantic-comedy....Slickly adapted by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein from the popular book....[The film] rolls out like an instructional soap opera." 02/01/2009 ,"CORALINE is a dark delight....This eccentric and deliriously inventive fantasy finds stop-motion auteur Henry Selick scaling new heights of ghoulish whimsy, buoyed by a haunting score that works its own macabre magic." 02/01/2009
Entertainment Weekly "This thrilling stop-motion animated adventure is a high point in Selick's career of crating handrcrafted wonderlands of beauty blended with deep, disconcerting creepiness." -- Grade: A 02/13/2009 ,Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The Best Films Of The Year" -- "[M]esmerizing....Selick creates a stunning alternate universe for the solitary little girl of the title..." 12/25/2009

Film Comment "Selick has complete command of the 3-D format, adding eerie depth and texture to the image..." 07/01/2009
