Ben, living in Minnesota in 1977, dreams of the father he’s never known. Rose, living in the New York City area in 1927, dreams of finding her mother, a glamorous actress (Julianne Moore). Their individual quests are the two intertwined stories of Hugo author Brian Selznick’s source book, perfectly performed here by child actors Oakes Fegley and Millicent Simmonds and brilliantly intercut and brought to brimming, beautiful life by Haynes, working once again with cinematographer Edward Lachman to create arresting, exquisite, and deeply emotional images in one of the year’s most rich, enchanting works of film art.
