Shakespearean polar bears would raise up any movie
The world of The Golden Compass cowers under the yoke of an authoritarian rule of religious zealots called the Magisterium. Scientists are poisoned, children kidnapped for experimentation and free thinking hindered at every step of the way. Real world religious [christian] groups have rallied against the series of books this film is based on, claiming it made them look bad. In the Netherlands we have a saying for that: ‘Wie de schoen past, trekke hem aan.’ Whom the cap fits, let him wear it.
