Director: Martin Scorsese
Screenwriters: John Logan; Brian Selznick (novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret)
Length: 2h 6m
Synopsis: On an average day in the middle of 1930s Paris, orphan boy Hugo Cabret (Butterfield) can be found tending to the public clocks of a train station at the heart of the city. Climbing inside, between, and behind the walls means Hugo can travel about the station unbeknownst to most everyone, allowing him to snatch the occasional piece of bread or fruit and retreat with ease. His penchant for pinching also includes mechanical parts from Mr. Méliès (Kingsley) toy shop to repair a mysterious automaton that his late father (Law) left him. Hugo eventually comes to meet Méliès’ granddaughter Isabelle (Moretz), and the two bond over their shared exploratory habits. Such habits get them into trouble, however, as Hugo finally gets caught stealing from the toy shop and both children get caught prying into Méliès’ past. What they discover is that Mr. Méliès was actually at one point a very successful and important filmmaker, but hard times forced him to give up his dreams and, even worse, face obscurity. By the end, Hugo makes up for his thefts by helping Méliès recapture the sense of purpose he felt when he put his dreams up on the silver screen. And along the way, Hugo’s also able to recapture that same sense for himself.
Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, and Rashida Jones have signed on to star opposite Paul Rudd in My Idiot Brother, which was written by Evgenia Peretz and David Schisgall and will be directed by Jesse Peretz.
Banks, Deschanel, and Mortimer will play Rudd’s sisters.
“Banks is a career-driven single about to get her big break in journalism after spending years writing about accessories at a fashion magazine; Deschanel is a bisexual whose flakiness and lies are getting in the way of moving forward with her caring, responsible girlfriend (Jones); and Mortimer plays a Park Slope mom too worried about having the perfect life and children to notice that her marriage is falling apart.” -THR
