When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her.

Review from the comment
This is one of my favorite animated films of all time. To be fair, I never read the book. However, I was so impressed by how realistic the animated character of Coraline was animated despite the clay-mation style and it was so unique and interesting that I was pretty much blown away. There's a segment in the film where Coraline is running through the house to do something and she trips over the rug and the rug's ruffled up a bit. Whoever thought to add little bits like that is a genius. Those are the parts who really make you feel like you're just watching into another world, a real person who just sees the world differently. I'd skip the 3d if I were you, though.
