You have to believe it to see it.

Synopsis

Molly Mahoney (Portman) is the awkward and insecure manager of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, the strangest, most fantastic, most wonderful toy store in the world. But when Mr. Magorium, the 243 year-old eccentric who owns the store (Hoffman), bequeaths the store to her, a dark and ominous change begins to take over the once remarkable Emporium.

When a young pianist named Molly Mahoney inherits a magical toyshop from her eccentric 243-year-old boss, Mr. Magorium, she struggles with self-doubt. But through the friendship of a charismatic little boy and a buttoned-up accountant, she learns to believe in herself, and finds that she does possess enough magic to run Mr. Magorium’s shop.
