She meets her "Other Mother" (also the voice of Teri Hatcher) and is enchanted by the attention she gives her. But, when Coraline discovers the dangers in her "Other" world, she must use her resourcefulness and even bravery to find her way back to her real world and save her real family. An Oscar nomination was received for Best Animated Feature.
