Although I was not able to review the film prior to opening today, November 3rd, here is the information I received for it.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel written and illustrated by Brian Selznick, who also created The Invention of Hugo Cabret (2007). Ben and Rose are children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry.
