Todd Haynes / USA 2017 / 1h56m / Digital / English and Spanish with English subtitles
Cast: Millicent Simmonds, Julianne Moore, Oakes Fegley, James Urbaniak, Damian Young, Patrick Murney, Cory Michael Smith.
Following the death of his mother, young Ben (Oakes Fegley) runs away from home and heads for New York City, searching for his father. Meanwhile, 50 years previously, Rose (Millicent Simmonds) also goes to New York City in search of her favourite actress, fleeing her neglectful father. Both hearing impaired, their stories mysteriously intertwine across the decades. Todd Haynes ('Carol', 'Far From Heaven') expertly weaves dual narratives whilst switching between time periods in this adaptation of Brian Selznick's illustrated novel.
