Todd Haynes's “Wonderstruck” is a contemporary miracle: Here, finally, is a children's film for real children, a sincere and humane work. Its source material is Brian Selznick's 2011 illustrated novel, a captivating chronicle of two children, separated by decades but united by a family secret. In 1927, the born-deaf Rose (Millicent Simmonds) runs away from home to pursue silent-movie star Lillian Mayhew in New York. In 1977, the newly deaf orphan Ben (Oakes Fegley) runs away from home to find his birth father in that same metropolis. –The Globe and Mail“It's a fairy tale full of earned sentiment.” Chicago Tribune“Alive with the magic of pictures and the mysteries of silence.” The Hollywood ReporterCast Oakes Fegley, Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams
