Fans of the Golden Compass series should be relatively pleased with the translation of book to screen here as the film is extremely loyal to it source. Those who have not read the book will find the film easy to follow and just as addicting..  Lyra, a wild and rebellious girl, has been sheltered at her College where they attempt to conform her into a civilized and learned young lady, of course to no avail. There are surprise visits from her Uncle Lord Aster that she looks forward to but his latest visit introduces her to a world that she never knew existed and one that will put her life and the world in danger.
