Synopsis

A family-friendly adventure is not something you would expect the director of Gangs of New York and Shutter Island to make, but that's what Martin Scorsese has achieved here with characteristic style. Hugo is a wide-eyed orphaned boy who lives within the walls of a bustling train station in 1930’s Paris. His lonely life is given a purpose by constructing a mysterious unfinished robot left to him by his father. The final piece of the metallic jigsaw comes in the unlikely form of friendly young girl, Isabelle - she wears a key around her neck that is a perfect fit for the robots lock. As the catch clicks free, a magical challenge awaits the pair that embraces their joint-love of cinema. The sophisticated storytelling and lavish camera work combine to create a loving postcard to the power of film and the magnificent flights of imagination it so often propels.
