Just watched the movie (I know not how it differs from the book)

It seems to be possessed of an interesting implicit premise. That is, not that faeries and the like are among us and hide (that's old hat), but that there exists a delicate equilibrium maintained by secrets.

The basic idea is that a researcher collected a bunch of these secrets into a field guide, and that some Ogres (I believe) want to steal it, to use the secrets to kill the other faeries (and, I assume, acquire their powers somehow).

Any thoughts?
