A week or two ago, I forget the exact date, Gary and I went to see a film called Hugo. It had received rather middling reviews in The Times; they said the beginning was good but the end was pretty boring. Well the reviewer at The Times doesn’t know what he/she is talking about because Gary and I loved it! Gary said it was the best film he’d seen all year! It is funny and sad and exciting and romantic and tender and moving and adventurous all at once.
It’s directed by Martin Scorsese and features a fabulous cast including Jude Law, Sasha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee and Ben Kingsley. I don’t know who plays the boy Hugo but he’s brilliant and so is the actress who plays the young girl. Everyone is good and the photography is to die for! Paris in the 1920s has never looked so Beautiful! I thoroughly recommend this film!
