Fall 2011 movie highlights
Hugo Yes, it’s a kind of children’s book. But anyone who’s read it knows the unusual magic afoot and why a man with Martin Scorsese’s eye would have been drawn to it. An orphan (Asa Butterfield) living in a Paris train station befriends an indigent toymaker who turns out to be the great movie pioneer Georges Méliès (Ben Kingsley). With any luck, the kid will be a stand-in for Scorsese, and Méliès the director’s artistic yardstick. With Jude Law, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Lee, Ray Winstone, and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Out: Nov. 23
