Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The White Queen sleeps and will not wake. Black shadows have fallen across her kingdom. The balance between dark and light is broken and only the MirrorMask can restore it. So Helena, a stranger in a strange land, embarks on an epic quest to find the missing charm before darkness envelopes the dreamworld forever.

Written by award-winning fantasy writer Neil Gaiman, MirrorMask is a phantasmagorical treat for the eyes and mind, a wondrous blend of live action and CG animation, where strange, magical creatures dwell in a fantasy world of unbridled imagination and scope...as told through the spectacular, cutting-edge visuals of designer/director Dave McKean.

Review:

"[T]his dazzling reverie of a kids-and-adults movie...has something to astonish everyone. (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"It's a near-flawless marriage of content and form, a movie that kids, adults and graduate students of computer imagery will all have their own reasons to love." Minneapolis Star Tribune

Review:

"If The Wizard of Oz were reborn in the 21st century, it might look a lot like MirrorMask." Hollywood Reporter

Review:

"There is something oddly intoxicating about Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman's coming-of-age fantasy." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Other efforts of this sort have succumbed to terminal whimsy, but director Dave McKean gives us enough reminders of the girl's fragile emotional state to provide some grounding." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Too long, and too rich, for its own good, but clearly Gaiman and McKean were bursting with ideas. Those ideas fly all over the place, sometimes landing with a thunk, but more often taking the breath away." Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"The movie is a triumph of visual invention, but it gets mired in its artistry and finally becomes just a whole lot of great stuff to look at while the plot puts the heroine through a few basic moves over and over again." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"It's so beautiful and so different and has such a unique feel to it." Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper

Review:

"If you can fall into it, you should be amazed, if not enchanted." Detroit Free Press

Review:

"At best, Helena's wiggy adventures recall such Jean Cocteau films as Orpheus and Blood of a Poet. At worst, they resemble the Vegas act of Cirque du Soleil." Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"Too strange and disjointed to attract much of an audience, but its astonishing visuals showcase a major new talent: first-time feature director and book illustrator Dave McKean." Kyle Smith, New York Post

Synopsis:

MirrorMask is the story of Helena, who works for the family circus, and wishes that she could run away and join real life.
