Our 2011 retrospective is almost at an end. Our second to last review is Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” based on Brian Selznick’s 2007 book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” starring Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer & Jude Law. The movie found unexpected ways to pay homage to cinema’s past while incorporating 3D technology from cinema’s present to give audiences a cinematic experience, unlike anything they had seen before from Scorsese until that point in his career. How does this family film aimed at children and adults hold up today? Take a trip to the moon with Lauren LaMagna, Dan Bayer, Daniel Howat, Will Mavity, and me as we discuss the film’s story, themes, performances, crafts, awards season run, and more in our review. Thank you for all your support, and enjoy! Also, be sure to check out our other 2011 retrospective reviews for “War Horse,” “The Help,” “The Iron Lady,” “Midnight In Paris,” “The Tree Of Life,” “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “Moneyball,” “The Descendants” & “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.”
