"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" is truly magical, along with a hint of reality.
The moral message about working, dreaming and finding yourself was woven through the plot and interactive cast.
Mr. Magorium (Dustin Hoffman) is 243 years old. I found his character to have a kid-friendly tone, even though he was a grown-up.
Hoffman is a brilliant actor and must have an eccentric imagination to bring make his character so lively.
The Emporium is an enchanted toy store filled with toys beyond anything you could imagine.
With a little twist from Mr. Magorium's magic, the toys come to life.
The store assistant is Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman). She is focused on finishing a song she has been composing for eight years -- she is struggling with its ending.
Mahoney will soon have the full ownership of the store and must discover how to keep the store alive and thriving in her own way.
It is Mahoney's work in the Emporium, which helps her find her passion and finish her song.
Magic fills the Emporium and the characters in the movie discover the real passion and importance lies within themselves to keep the toy emporium alive.
"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" was a good movie.
I am a fan of Dustin Hoffman. I enjoyed seeing him do a great job with this character. His performance is fantastic.
I thought I was going to be bored with the movie based on the rating G for ‘general audience,' but to my surprise it was worth watching "Mr. Magorium's Magical Emporium."
Anyone with a little bit of magic in them will be able to see and enjoy the movie as I did.
