Based on the book by Cornelia Funke, Inkheart is a timeless adventure tale of imagination that centers on Meggie, a young girl whose father has a secret ability to bring characters from books to life when he reads them aloud. But when a power-hungry villain from a rare children’s fable kidnaps Meggie’s father to bring others out of the boundaries of fiction, she and a disparate group of friends both real and magic embark on the kind of adventure she has only read about in books to save him and set things right. Inkheart stars Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Crash), Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code), Helen Mirren, Jim Broadbent, Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Eliza Hope Bennett (Nanny McPhee) as Meggie. It is directed by Iain Softley (The Skeleton Key) from a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire.
