If you LOVE film–I would find it hard to believe that you would not LOVE this film. Hugo is story told for movie lovers, by a movie lover. Martin Scorsese has never hidden his passion from us–but, I daresay this is the first time he has shown it to us so powerfully and yet so delicately. It will evoke strong emotions and memories of all the films that have affected your life.
I was pleasantly surprised that the trailer did not reveal, even a quarter of what is truly waiting for you when you sit in that darken theater. So, as you know, I will not spoil it for you. All I will tell you is that it is perfectly acted–wonderfully scored–and brilliantly directed!
One more thing, though–if you can, watch it in 3-D (even IMAX if possible). I like 3-D, when it is used properly–but, this is a very unique way of using it–it is almost a character in the story. Bravo!
Place Hugo high on your Christmas watching list! It will not disappoint…it will make you smile.
