Says Scottish Screen: “Stardust is a fantasy adventure based on the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman, who also wrote The Sandman. A young man named Tristan tries to win the heart of village beauty Victoria, played by Sienna Miller (Factory Girl) by promising to bring her a falling star. His journey takes him beyond the walls of his village to a mysterious and forbidden land. Stardust was shot on location on the beautiful and visually arresting landscapes of the Isle of Skye.”
