Inkheart
Brendan Fraser stars as a “silvertongue,” a man who can bring elements of the books he reads aloud to life, who discovered his power has tragic consequences when his wife (Sienna Guillory) is kidnapped and taken away into a rare book called Inkheart. For years, he has searched for a copy of the book to try to rescue her and, once he finds it, he discovers that his gift is hereditary and his daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett) possesses it as well. This leads to both of them being trapped along with their Aunt Elinor (Helen Mirren) in the iron fist of the evil Capricorn (Andy Serkis). Only the help of the book’s author, the highly skeptical Fengolio (Jim Broadbent), and one of his flawed characters, the flame-juggler Dustfinger (Paul Bettany), can save them from a dark fate.
