One of the more charming films to come out in 2011. Such a beautifully told story both visually and verbally. I would’ve laughed in your face if you told me Scorsese was capable of producing such a thoughtful and deep children’s film. Certainly one of the most well acted films of 2011. Ben Kingsley was robbed of an Oscar nomination, he stole the show. Such a lovely film that portrays the early days of cinema so vividly. I came close to tearing up a few times. The whole film is about making connections with other human beings and what you do with those connections you make. Really enjoyed it.
