Whatever the case, it’s a clever, original, haunting frequently scary film that has, at its heart, the bonds of family.
Brian Selznick’s novel about two children from different eras who wish their lives were different has been turned into a film by Todd Haynes.
Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. Each is spurred into action by a discovery and they set out on quests to learn what they are missing.
