Lovely.  I tried googling the phrase, elegant as it is, and found
exactly two hits, one from a comic review and the other from a movie
review of "The Human Stain" at a site called...The Dental Arts of
Plano ("State of the Art with a Heart"):

This movie will cast you in its spell and surprise you with its secrets.
