Storyline

A professor, grieving for his dead wife, and his two daughters unwillingly journey to a parallel universe of fairy court, marauding trolls, and a prophecy that they will save this nether world. They board the Unicorn, a magic ship manned by elves. In the search for a dragon who will help them fulfill the prophecy, they encounter the Minotaur, Medusa, the Sphinx, an ogre, and a unicorn whose tears they need to reverse one of Medusa's misguided stares. The trolls also seek the dragon. Capture and slavery awaits failure, while faith precedes the miracle. The spirit of their mother is close to the girls, who must find courage and imagination, while Dad must keep his wits. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Malachi: Foul Troll magic
Alan Aisling: We'll have to sail where they can never find us.
Malachi: That's ridiculous
Alan Aisling: You disagree?
Malachi: I've spent little enough time in your world, Professor, and I don't pretend to be a deep thinker, but what I see is this: Trolls are everywhere. Different shapes and sizes, calling themselves by different names, but Trolls nonetheless. They like to tear things down, make everything the same, the way they like it. They run their ship by fear and bluster. Avoiding them is no good.

The Best Film Ever
8 November 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

this is one of my favorite films ever because the story is so amazing. the acting is really good and its just wonderful! i was so blown away by the set and the props. it really was like a whole other world came to life. I was really glad that this film wasn't like the other films where the characters go to another world. It wasn't like narnia at all. i find that lots of films that deal with traveling to another dimension and all fairly similar. this film was very different! it also wasn't like lord of the rings either. lots of fantasy stories follow the same ideas and principals. This one was different and really good. I love the way the actors worked together. They had a lot of chemistry. that is really important to any play, movie, skit, ext. that was really cool to see on screen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
