Legendary storyteller Martin Scorsese invites you to join him on a thrilling journey to a magical world based on Brian Selznick’s award-winning, imaginative New York Times best-seller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
Hugo is the astonishing adventure of a wily and resourceful orphan boy whose quest to unlock a secret left to him by his father will transform Hugo and all those around him.
In resourceful orphan Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield, an Oliver Twist-like charmer), Martin Scorsese finds the perfect vessel for his silver-screen passion: this is a movie about movies. After his clockmaker father (Jude Law) perishes in a museum fire, Hugo goes to live with his Uncle Claude (Ray Winstone), a drunkard who maintains the clocks at a Paris train station. When Claude disappears, Hugo carries on his work and fends for himself by stealing food from area merchants. In his free time, he attempts to repair an automaton his father rescued from the museum, while trying to evade the station inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen), a World War I veteran with no sympathy for lawbreakers. When Georges (Ben Kingsley), a toymaker, catches Hugo stealing parts for his mechanical man, he recruits him as an assistant to repay his debt. If Georges is guarded, his open-hearted ward, Isabelle (Chloë Moretz), introduces Hugo to a kindly bookseller (Christopher Lee), who directs them to a motion-picture museum, where they meet film scholar René (Boardwalk Empire's Michael Stuhlbarg). In helping unlock the secret of the automaton, they learn about the roots of cinema, starting with the Lumière brothers, and give a forgotten movie pioneer his due, thus illustrating the importance of film preservation, a cause to which the director has dedicated his life. If Scorsese's adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret isn't his most autobiographical work, it just may be his most personal. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

And, last but not least, it highlights the amazing work of Georges Melies, who will be unknown to many people before viewing this film. As a follow-up action I'd recommend watching the excellent Melies The Magician  [DVD] [NTSC] as this gives an excellent insight into his career. Wonderful!
However we now have a philips 4k, 3d telly, 50" screen and gave the film another airing.......all I can say is wow. The film in 3d is amazing. What a transformation.
It appears size does matter where 3d is concerned.
However, this film is very good. It is beautifully shoot with great performances, and some spectacular special effects. Chloe Mertz steels every scene she's in and it features one of Ben Kingsley's best performances in years.
