A Golden Find

Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig star in Dec. 7’s His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass.

What’s that? Why am I telling you about a film that’s more than six months away? Bore someone else with your questions.

Fine – the simplest answer is, of course, Craig. Although wanting to spread the word on what looks like a fun film also is a good reason. But, mostly…you know.

Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) is an orphan who lives happily in Jordan College, Oxford, playing with local boys and terrorizing professors. However, when she overhears a frightening plot against her uncle, Lord Asriel (Craig), her curiosity is roused, and she soon is in over her head as she uncovers a whole new world of possibilities. (Kidman plays the villainous and glamorous Mrs. Coulter.)

That synopsis doesn’t offer much, does it? I think you’d be better off watching the trailer, which you can do here.
