Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman), an amateur pianist, is an employee at "Mr.
Magorium's Wonder Emporium", a magical and sentient toy shop run by the
eccentric 243-year-old Mr. Edward Magorium (Dustin Hoffman). Besides Molly and
Mr. Magorium, store bookbuilder Bellini (Ted Ludzik), a strongman, is also
employed. Eric Applebaum (Zach Mills) is a boy who comes to the store daily and
functions as an employee despite his young age. One day, the store develops a
large grey patch on one of its walls, which rumbles periodically.
In response to Molly telling Mr. Magorium that she feels stuck, he gives her
the Congreve Cube, a big block of wood, and tells her it will guide her to a new
life and adventure if she has faith in it. Molly wants to become a composer and
concert pianist, but has not been able to write any music since graduating. At
home, she works on a concerto with little progress.
Mr. Magorium suddenly announces that he intends to "leave" and is giving the
shop to Molly to provide her with the means to move forward and become "unstuck"
in life. In preparation for his departure, Mr. Magorium hires an accountant,
Henry Weston (Jason Bateman), to organize the shop's paperwork and determine his
legacy to Molly. Henry does not believe that the toy store is magical, arguing
with Molly over its properties and debating the actuality of Magorium's records
from the past 200 years, most of which are entirely lost.
When Molly expresses her doubts and becoming upset about her ability to run
the store, the Emporium 'throws a tantrum', assaulting everyone inside with the
toys until Magorium calms it down. Molly finally realizes that Mr. Magorium is
leaving not to retire but instead he is going to die. Desperate to stop this,
Molly rushes him to a hospital where he is discharged the next day because
nothing is physically wrong with him.
After leaving the hospital, Mr. Magorium asks Molly how she is doing with the
Congreve Cube and asks what would happen if she believed in it. Molly does not
understand but attempts to prevent Mr. Magorium's departure by showing him the
joys of life, but he knows it is time for his story to end. Utilizing the stage
notes of Shakespeare's King Lear to make the point about the importance of
death, Magorium states the last lines of one of the most important pieces of
dramatic literature are simply "he dies" before his death. Molly, Eric, all the
children and their parents have a funeral for him.
Believing herself to be unworthy and incapable of owning a magical store,
Molly puts it up for sale. The store grieves and loses all its magic, becoming
varying shades of gray and black. Eric tries to reason with Molly over her
decision to sell the store when he sees her at a hotel playing background music.
Henry meets Molly at the store to draw up the sale papers, where he sees the
Congreve Cube and asks her about it. When Molly confesses her complete faith in
the store and the Congreve Cube's magical ability, the block suddenly springs to
life, and proceeds to fly around the store. After witnessing this, Henry faints
with shock. When he later awakes and questions Molly about it, she tells him
that it must have been a dream as she went home the previous night, leaving him
to finalize the paperwork for the sale.
Henry is not deterred as he knows Molly made the cube fly and though she does
not believe she can do magical and wonderful things, he believes in her. Henry
realizes Molly is the Congreve Cube, a block of wood that can be anything if she
can somehow believe in herself. Henry's wholehearted belief in Molly ignites a
tiny spark in her and she believes. The store responds to her belief and
continues to respond as her confidence builds until the entire store
magnificently transforms. The magic and color return as Molly's long-awaited
symphony comes into existence.
