Children's fantasy action adventure. Meggie (Eliza Bennett) travels all over the world with her father Mo 'Silvertongue' Folchart (Brendan Fraser), a skilled bookbinder.
Mo has a very special talent: he is able to bring story characters to life as he reads.
When he brings three characters to life from the medieval tale 'Inkheart', fire-eater Dustfinger (Paul Bettany) and the villainous duo Capricorn (Andy Serkis) and Basta (Jamie Foreman), he unleashes a terrible evil that will come back to cause all kinds of trouble for his family for years to come.
Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent co-star.
