"Haynes ... puts a kid-friendly spin on his usual themes of isolation and frustrated longing in "Wonderstruck," an ingenious and captivating adaptation of Brian Selznick's 2011 best-selling children's novel." - Los Angeles Times

Todd Haynes, the brilliant filmmaker behind Carol and Far From Heaven, has made an all-ages film that has the depth, beauty and resonance of his adult work while being accessible and fun for everyone in your family - young and old alike. Wonderstruck, based on a best-selling novel, spans decades as it tells a heartwarming story of change, loss and the magic of human connection.

In 1927 Rose (Millicent Simmonds, a staggering new discovery of talent) runs away from home to find her idol. In 1977 Ben (Oakes Fegley, Pete's Dragon) runs away from home and heads for New York City. Both children are connected by their deafness - Rose is fully deaf, Ben is deaf in one ear - and their stories intertwine across the decades, finally coming together in a breathtaking way.

Haynes shoots Rose’s scenes like a silent movie, both as an homage to the era but also in deference to her deafness. Ben’s scenes have the rough and gritty feel of the 70s. Yet these disparate styles complement each other perfectly, coming together to create a whole that is so much more than the sum of their parts.

A soaring motion picture that speaks to us all, Wonderstruck is guaranteed to leave you crying and smiling, filled with hope at a time when we need it most.
