Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed Young Adult novel, visionary director Todd Haynes (Carol) returns with this rich and gorgeous adaptation.
The film tells the stories of two deaf children, living some 50 years apart, who embark on semi-magical quests through New York City after they run away from home.
Ben longs for the father he's never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue and Rose reads an enticing headline, they both set out on epic journey to find what they're missing.
A sincere and compassionate family film that, thanks to Haynes' breathtaking visuals, is a true wonder to behold.
