Wonderstruck (PG)

Drama, Family, Mystery

The story of a young boy in the Midwest is told simultaneously with a tale about a young girl in New York from fifty years ago as they both seek the same mysterious connection.

The critical consensus

Elegantly mounted, but also twee and mawkish.

The connections that bind them together and the answers to their questions make for a charming adaptation of the Brian Selznick children’s novel.

Haynes’ film has lovely performances from both actors, and a keen sense of time and place help, but the story is a little too shaggy and unformed to entirely hold the attention.
