Eric and I didn't get a chance to see this movie before the Oscars, but boy did it do well. Everyone at the party who had seen it was raving about it. So that just meant we had to see it that much sooner.
The story revolves around a young boy who lives in the train station and who's job is to make sure the clocks are wound. After having an important notebook stolen from a grumpy old shopkeeper, the young boy makes a friend who helps him get it back. It really is a cute story. But I am somewhat partial to kids movies. I think I may be more excited about the boys being able to watch movies than they will ever be.
Unless you hate kids movies, this is a great one to see. And everything is just beautiful in the movie. Oh, and it's Martin Scorcese's first children's movie. It's far from The Departed, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, or Shutter Island, but he's an incredible director, so it's no wonder he was nominated for an Oscar.
