Portman plays Molly Mahoney, the awkward and insecure
manager of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, the strangest, most fantastic
toy store in the world. But when Mr. Magorium (Hoffman), the 243-year-old
eccentric who owns the store, bequeaths it to her, a dark and ominous
change begins to take over the once remarkable Emporium.
The festive season gets off to an early start with this
Tim Burton-lite fantasy tale.
