Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is a movie released by Disney back in 2007. It stars Natalie Portman (Molly Mahoney), Dustin Hoffman (Mr. Emporium), and Jason Bateman (Henry Weston aka “The Mutant”).

This is a delightful little movie that puts a little bit of fantasy in the regular everyday world. It is safe for the whole family to watch and one that will entertain adults just as much as littles. I remember really liking it when it came out, and having watched it again a few times over the last month, I can affirm that it holds up remarkably well with age.

Although a comedy, there is real emotion and development throughout the film. I am grieving the loss of a family member and this film deals with death in a positive way. Watching it on repeat lately has been a cathartic experience.

Mr Magorium’s story was reaching its final chapter. That’s okay — all stories, even the ones we love, must eventually come to an end … and when they do, it’s only an opportunity for another story to begin.

It is also a coming of age story, featuring Molly Mahoney. I completely relate to her feeling stuck right now!

I definitely recommend this movie for the family!!
