With Brian Selznick and Mark Friedberg in person 

Followed by a book signing

Dir. Todd Haynes. 2017, 117 mins. DCP courtesy Amazon Studios. With Oakes Fegley, Millicent Simmonds, Julianne Moore. A pair of deeply emotional stories of obsession from different time periods ultimately converge in Todd Haynes’s wondrous adaptation of Brian Selznick’s stunning book. A young deaf boy travels from Minnesota to New York in 1977, after his single mother dies, to look for the father he has never known. A half-century earlier, a girl named Rose, also deaf, dreams of a mysterious movie actress. An ideal blend of artistic sensibilities, Wonderstruck is one of the most enchanting and moving films of the year. This preview screening will be followed by a discussion with author and screenwriter Brian Selznick, production designer Mark Friedberg, and three-time Academy Award–winning costume designer Sandy Powell.
