Todd Haynes United States, 2017

msmichel's rating of the film Wonderstruck

Haynes' latest is an adaptation of the Brian Selznick novel telling two similar tales fifty years apart in his usual technically meticulous style. What's missing this time is the emotional connect which makes this film seem much longer than its runtime. The final section comes together well but its laborious getting there. One can't fault the film on style or its wonderful time period reconstructions. A rare miss
