Hugo (2011): Asa Butterfield, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law
Hugo is a warm and well told story sending a message to take notice of others and to comprehend the thin and frail thread that binds humanity. A salute to film making, to the well told story and acting with the reminder not to stop, nor settle, and instead run forward embracing life with adventure and purpose. The movie grips the audience from beginning to end with laughter, tears, and awe. Cohen is funny yet seriously touching and Butterfield is captivating as Hugo. Johnny Depp produced the movie and Martin Scorsese, directed the film. Both are strategically placed in Hugo for a brief moment. This is one film that will not be forgotten. Don't miss Hugo in 3D!
Hugo is nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture 2011. Prediction - will take the Best Picture Oscar.
Side note: After seeing the film - google George Melies and Martin Scorsese whose childhood was spent looking through windows.
