Wonderstruck Rated PG


Dir. Todd Haynes. USA, 2017. 1h 56m. Starring Millicent Simmonds, Julianne Moore, Cory Michael Smith, James Urbaniak, Damian Young, Patrick Murney.

Two mysteriously connected stories of two children growing up in different eras: a boy in the American Midwest during the 1970s, and a deaf girl in 1920s New York. An imaginative coming-of-age story and elegant homage to silent cinema from the director of Carol.

'Todd Haynes's glorious celebration of a boy's own and a girl's own adventure really does leave you wonderstruck -- and in my case, weeping discreetly during the final scenes.’ ★★★★★ Kate Muir, The Times

'The film's finest sequences reach for the skies, achieving something like a Haynes-Spielberg alchemy in their consoling tenderness.’ ★★★★ Time Robey, The Telegraph
