Two children from different eras search for what they are missing, in a mesmerizing symmetrical quest.


Why watch this film?

From the same director of 'Carol', Todd Haynes, this is an adaptation of Brian Selznick's book 'Wonderstruck: The Museum of Wonders', the same author of 'The Invention of Hugo'. It is a creative and fantasy-filled movie, showing how the world looks through the eyes of children - who have hearing impairments in the story. With that said, the soundtrack is essential in 'Breathless'. This is a great movie with great performances from both children and adults, such as Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Amy Hargreaves.
