Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

What’s it about?
A nine-year-old amateur inventor, Francophile, and pacifist searches New York City for the lock that matches a mysterious key left behind by his father, who died in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

What did we think?
An example of Hollywood greenlighting a concept without caring if the actual writing and details are any good. They were obviously banking on the star power and emotion to attract rather than specifics and quality. Don’t bother.

    Utterly disagree. A beautiful examination of how a boy living with aspergers deals with the loss of his father. Touching and insightful.
