Synopsis

Martin Scorsese's glowing 1930s-set fantasy follows young orphan Hugo (Asa Butterfield) as he investigates the rich cinematic past of a reclusive toymaker. Living among the clockwork behind the walls of a stupendous Parisian station, the youngster painstakingly renovates a rusting automaton that provides a link with his late, lamented father...and Kingsley's hero of silent cinema. Sacha Baron Cohen supplies the laughs as a pompous chef de gare while Chloƫ Grace Moretz is the young girl who joins Hugo on his secret quest. Ravishing CGI and an unalloyed human warmth make this a must-see. James Cameron called it a masterpiece...and who are we to differ?
