Our friends, John and Sara, went to see Stardust while it was in theaters. I remember John expressed his concern to me that it wasn't particularly appropriate for children, despite being a children's movie. I didn't explain to him at the time the difference between Neil Gaiman's fairy tales and those of the Brothers Grimm. Neil's fairy tales aren't for children. You can tell because they don't feature all sorts of grisly violence and bloody vengeance, but they do address things like existentialism and sexual orientation. I wish I had told him that.
