ANYONE who enjoyed Robin Williams' Jumanji will find close parallels in the film Inkheart (PG) released by the Hollywood Cinema in Lowestoft this week.

As a skilled 'Book Doctor', otherwise known as a bookbinder, Mo Folchart (Brendan Fraser) drags his daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennet) all around the world. At their most recent home, an old and strange acquaintance of Mo's, called Dustfinger (Paul Bettany), shows up. The next morning, without any explanation Mo packs up and leaves with Meggie and takes her to Great Aunt Eleanor's (Helen Mirren) house to stay. Eleanor is rich, and a collector of rare books that she refers to as her children.

Shortly after their arrival Mo is kidnapped and taken to see Capricorn (Andy Serkis), a cruel and evil dictator.

It's not long before Meggie learns that her father has the ability to read characters out of books and literally bring them to life. The only drawback is that when he brings a character out of a story, something must go back in to replace it, this is how Meggie lost her mother, Theresa (Sienna Guillory), when she replaced Capricorn and Dustfinger, who were originally characters from the book Inkheart.

Determined to rescue her father, Meggie sets out with Eleanor to Capricorn's village.

The group of them must find another copy of Inkheart and send Capricorn and his thieves back into its pages and return Dustfinger to the home he misses so much.

Also being screened this week at the Hollywood The Day The Earth Stood Still (12A), Madagascar Escape 2 Africa (PG), Four Christmases (12A), Transporter 3.
