  • movie Description
  • Set in a magical world where people's souls exist in an animal form, called a daemon, outside of their bodies, the film revolves around precocious orphan Lyra Belacqua and her daemon Pantalaimon. "Gobblers," workers from the General Oblation Board, are snatching children from Lyra's area. No one knows where they are taking them, what they are doing with them, or what will happen. But when Lyra finds herself in the guardianship of Mrs. Coulter, head of the General Oblation Board, the puzzle pieces start to fall into place at a terrifying pace. Even more frightening are the horrors that Lyra uncovers.moreless
