“Based on Brian Selznick’s captivating and imaginative New York Times bestseller “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” Hugo Cabret, Scorsese’s film shot tells the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl, and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.
“In Hugo, an exhilarating tale of magic, machines, memories, and dreams, Martin Scorsese pulls off the neatest trick of all. He marshals the marvels of modern movie technology … to create a love letter to the earliest of movies and, by extension, to every movie from then to now. Yes, Hugo is a family film and, yes, your children and your inner child stand to be enraptured, but the family Scorsese really made this for is the 100-year-old tribe of watchers in the dark.” (Ty Burr, The Boston Globe)
