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 ...

Anyone who enjoys the book will love the movie!

Laura's Star is a beautiful story about seven year old Laura who has moved from the country to the town with her family, Mum, Dad and little brother. She's lonely and needs a friend. One night whilst out gazing out into the night, she sees something fall from the sky. She follows the light and finds that it was a star which, having been broken in the fall, needs someone to care for it. I won't spoil the story for those who haven't read the book!

The animation is beautiful, and there's just enough detail added to make a full length movie without taking away from the original story.

Watch Laura's Star through the eyes of an infant and it's MAGICAL!
