New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality.

Early on, the film shows an image of the current Grand Central Station, with a title card that shows the date as the 1800's. The current structure was built in 1913. The correct name is Grand Central Terminal. See more »
What if, once upon a time, there were no stars in the sky at all? What if the stars are not what we think? What if the light from afar doesn't come from the rays of distant suns, but from our wings as we turn into angels? Destiny calls to each of us. And there is a world behind the world where we are all connected, all part of a great and moving plan. Magic is everywhere around us. You just have to look. Look. Look closely.

See It For Its Heart And Very Strong Message If You're Wondering About Love And Self-Value
This movie is absolutely one of the strangest I've ever seen . At some point , I was even thinking I'd leave . However , at the end , I figured out this is one of the movies with a strong message I'd ever seen . Instead of giving it a one-star, I gave it an 8 .
Akiva Goldsman is the one to blame in this mess . I couldn't believe how the movie was shattered , out of tone , confusing at many times , uncontrolled ( not in a good way ) and utterly stupid , not in the least sense near a fairy tale even . A fairy tale is more interesting and even more beautiful than that . The direction was a disaster . Jessica Brown Findlay shines , though . What saved it was what the movie / novel wanted to say about the value of our own selves and the value of love . We have a tendency to believe that miracles are shiny things with a lot of fantasy but actually miracles are not that . This movie will make you look at your own self as a miracle and if you're in love , it will show you how blessed you can be with your love in your life , and how saving one's soul , only by true love and loyalty , is the greatest thing you can accomplish on this earth . Simple and powerful as that .
If you're someone who wants to watch themes of love discussed in good and powerful movies , this is one of the best . It doesn't differ much if you were a believer in true everlasting love or not , or even wondering about it . Try to sit through the stupid parts to enjoy the good ones , most importantly , without prejudice :)
