The Golden Compass is a wonderfully beautiful film in the theme of Narnia and Lord of the Rings. It tells the tale of a young orphan girl, Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards) who lives in an alternate universe where people's souls exist outside of their bodies in the form of some animal, called Deamons. Lyra, with the help of her shape-changing deamon, Pantalaimon, uncovers a tale of a magical substance called Dust, meets a beautiful mysterious woman (Nicole Kidman), and vows to save her friend Roger from the child napping Gobblers. Her quest leads her into the wild frozen north where she meets armored polar bears, slow-talking cowboys, witches and gypsies. It's a feast for the eyes and an excellent tale.
