News About "Wonderstruck"

Wonderstruck opens in a limited theatrical release on October 20, 2017.

This movie is based on the book Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. He is also the the author/illustrator of of The Invention of Hugo Cabret (which was the inspiration for the film Hugo.).

Selznick uses detailed drawings to share part of the story in both of his books. Wonderstruck tells the tale of two characters: Rose, a deaf girl living in 1927 Hoboken, New Jersey, and Ben, an orphan from 1977 Minnesota who has recently lost his hearing. Rose's view of the world is created through a series of illustrations, Ben's is told in text. Rose has a fascination with a silent film star (a character based on the real life actress Lillian Gish). Ben is seeking the father he never knew. Each runs away and ends up at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. And of course their parallel lives eventually intersect.

The film version of Wonderstruck is directed by Todd Haynes, and stars Julianne Moore. Millicent Simmonds (who is deaf in real life) plays Rose. Oakes Fegle takes on the role of Ben.
