Todd Haynes (Carol, Far From Heaven) returns with a marvelous time-travelling tale that—as so many have already said—will, indeed, leave you feeling what the title suggests. Based on The Invention of Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick’s YA novel, this dazzlingly inventive drama runs on parallel tracks while following the fortunes of two deaf 12-year-olds: Ben (Oakes Fegley), a lad in 1977 Michigan who loses his mother (Michelle Williams), and Rose (luminous newcomer Millicent Simmonds), a girl in 1927 New Jersey obsessed with silent screen star Lillian Mayhew (Julianne Moore, channeling Lillian Gish).
