Wonderstruck Trailer: New York, in Two Magical Eras
Todd Haynes’s newest movie is Wonderstruck, adapted from the Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret) young-adult book of the same name. Wonderstruck tells the parallel stories of a pair of deaf children separated by time: Ben (Oakes Fegley of Pete’s Dragon) lives in 1977 and has recently lost his mom (Michelle Williams) in a car accident, and Rose (Millicent Simmonds) is butting heads with an overbearing dad (James Urbaniak) in 1927. Both arrive in New York City trying to track down adults they love. He’s looking for his missing father; she’s searching for a movie star she idolizes (Julianne Moore). One era is set in black and white; the other in vibrant color. See Wonderstruck in theaters October 20.
