'The movies are our special place,' remarks 'Hugo''s title character, and his words go a long way towards explaining how Martin Scorsese, with his well-documented and infectious passion for the history of cinema, came to make a children's fantasy. Adapted from an award-winning book by Brian Selznick, 'Hugo' tells the story of an orphan (Asa Butterfield) who lives inside the walls of a Parisian train station in the early 1930s, tending to its giant clock and scheming to rehabilitate an antiquated automaton his father left him. The boy's quest leads him to the angry old proprietor of a little toy shop, who turns out to be none other than the pioneering filmmaker Georges Méliès ('A Trip to the Moon'). Scorsese transforms this innocent tale into an ardent love letter to cinema and a moving plea for film preservation.

    Martin Scorsese's delightful family adventure tells the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. Hugo (Asa Butterfield) - searching for the key to operate the broken machine left to him by his late father - encounters an eccentric girl (Chloë Moretz), and a cold, reserved man (Ben Kingsley) by the name of Georges Méliès who runs a toy shop. From there, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.
