Hugo (Asa Butterfield) is a small boy who lives within the walls of a train station in Paris, winding and fixing the broken clocks. He also has a secret; the automaton which he and his father were trying to fix before the tragic fire that happened.

After many little thefts he is caught by Papa Georges (Ben Kingsley) and befriends his goddaughter, Isabelle (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz). The mystery of the automaton, the connection with Hugo’s father and Isabelle’s godfather are soon sort after by the children.

However keeping low after the death of Hugo’s Uncle is hard with the Station Inspector (Sasha Baron Cohen) keeping an eye on any young children without parents.

Hugo blends 1930’s Paris with film history & magic, with adding 3D to the mix. The 3D effects were quiet stunning; due to being filmed with 3D cameras. The imagery and costuming were gorgeous. The film is based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick and by acclaimed director Martin Scorsese. It is a film to fall in love with. Also starring Christopher Lee and Jude Law & is produced by Johnny Depp.

Hugo (PG) is now screening across Australia in 2D & 3D, check local newspapers and websites for session times.
