Wondering why times are missing?


Master melodramatist Todd Haynes (Safe, Velvet Goldmine, Far From Heaven, Carol) directs this family drama involving two mysteriously intertwined tales. In one, a 12-year-old boy in rural Minnesota, circa 1977, mourns the sudden loss of his mother while wondering about the father he never knew. Intercut with this is the story of another young protagonist, a 12-year-old deaf girl in 1927 who escapes her possessive father by watching the movies of her silent film idol (Julianne Moore). Based on the illustrated novel for young readers by Brian Selznick (Hugo), this is a meticulously crafted puzzle box of a film. 116 minutes PG.
