A Little Bit of Broadway

Coraline
(2009)

A young girl moves with her family to a new apartment – she’s lost her friends and her parents are inattentive. She discovered a door that leads to an alternate universe, with a loving Other Mother and Other Father. Just one strange thing – they have buttons for eyes. At first, Coraline is entranced, but eventually she begins to realize that the Other Parents aren’t as nice as they seem and the way home seems to disappear.

Based on the book by Neil Gaiman, with music and lyrics by the Magnetic Fields Stephen Merritt, Coraline is a scary look into how appearances can be deceiving
