Wonderstruck Reviews

June 29, 2017
Haynes ... puts a kid-friendly spin on his usual themes of isolation and frustrated longing in "Wonderstruck," an ingenious and often captivating adaptation of Brian Selznick's 2011 children's novel.

Haynes lends the film an air of childish magic and Carter Burwell's magnificent front-and-centre score adds energy and character.

Haynes has found his way to those people over the years, and with Wonderstruck, he draws many of them close.

[Wonderstruck] is a blend of the graceful and the garish that reaches for magic but ends up more of a cabinet of curiosities than one of wonder.

For the first time in memory, Haynes is working with a story whose plot outweighs its concept, as lovely as that concept often is.

Alive with the magic of pictures and the mysteries of silence, this is an uncommonly grownup film about children, communication, connection and memory.

An ambitious doohickey impersonating a work of art.
