released Friday April 6th, 2018
Ben and Rose are children who come from two very different worlds, but have much in common – both are hearing impaired, and dream of better things.
Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a silent movie star whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a note that might lead him to his absent father, and Rose stumbles across an article in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing, which unfold with mesmerizing symmetry.
Two parallel lives set 50 years apart, their paths cross in the same place but at different times.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Brian Selznick, who also wrote the screenplay for the film (and whose previous work was adapted by Martin Scorsese for the film Hugo), with Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and a breakthrough performance from deaf newcomer Millicent Simmonds as Rose, Wonderstruck is a beautiful and imaginative story between time periods from director Todd Haynes (Carol, Far From Heaven).
