Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig star in a fantasy adventure of parallel worlds, witches, warring bears and shape-shifting animals. Lyra Belacqua is an orphan who lives happily in Jordan College, Oxford, playing with local boys and terrorizing the professors. However, when Lyra overhears scholars discussing a plot against her uncle, Lord Asriel, centering on a mysterious substance called Dust, her curiosity is roused. Soon Lyra is in over her head as she uncovers a frightening plot and a whole new world of possibilities.
- Described as darker in tone than the "Harry Potter" books, the series tackles themes of childhood, innocence and sin, and combines magic, science and theology.
