On her first night in their top floor apartment, she sees a shooting star, actually falling to earth, she finds it in a park and discovers it's a living being. Taking it back home, she and her toddler brother Tommy discover it can do miracles like making people fly and bringing inanimate objects to life. But over time both notice that the longer it stays on earth, the weaker it becomes, can they along with next door neighbor Max find a way to send it back into outer space, before tragedy occurs?

Laura: [sighs and presses against her bedroom window] Ugh. Mom, Dad, where's the apple tree?
Mother: Oh, Laura, sweetheart. Has your spacecraft survived the move in one piece? And your flight? Come on, tell us a bit about it.
Laura: Mm. It was all a bit much, if you don't mind me saying. During our landing, we drifted slightly off course, as you all know. Then I opened my curtains and hard a good look around, and what did I see? My lovely apple tree's not there, nor my friends. The meadow has also ...

Shades of Miyazaki
10 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Laura's Star is an extremely amiable children's movie full of imagination and charm. Something tells me Hayao Miyazaki may have been an influence on De Rycker and Rothkirch, since Laura's Stern (or Laura's Star) carries with it shades of Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service and, to a slightly lesser degree, My Neighbour Totoro. I could be wrong of course, but it's easy to draw this comparison simply judging from the aesthetics and the likable narrative of this film and, if anything, it's meant as a compliment. Still, there's a hint of triumphalism here in that I'm glad to see one of my favourite film-makers having a bearing on other directors and animators, as well they should.

In any case, I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Laura's Star to anyone with young children - or for that matter people like myself who just happen to have a weakness for all things cutesy and good-natured.
