If you have time today, do see this. It's very good -- a beautiful quasi-animated fantasy story combining modern drama and dream logic. And Dave McKean's art takes on entirely new and interesting qualities when animated, becoming more interestingly horrific and more beautiful.
But the theatres have -no- idea what they have. Based on the previews (only one of which was the least bit appropriate, that being Pride and Prejudice), they seem to think this is a teen romance or family drama, whereas in fact they have a Labrynth-like (but darker, and with art instead of song) fantasy movie in their hands. So just in case they completely mishandle it, see it in the big theatres before it's -gone-.
