Join Bozeman Film Society for a holiday presentation of Wonderstruck, the spellbinding retelling of author-illustrator Brian Selznick’s 2011 critically acclaimed fable. Directed by Todd Haynes, this cleverly split tale follows Ben and Rose, two deaf children from different eras—one in 1977 and one in 1927—as they embark on an epic quest to New York City, connecting across time as they look for family members and eventually end up at the American Museum of Natural History. Like Hugo (also based on a Selznick novel), this is a family-friendly historical adventure that explores similar themes of family, friendship, and the importance of perseverance, curiosity, art, and science.
Closed/Open Caption and Descriptive Narration available. In honor of the non-hearing community that inspires it, Wonderstruck features open-caption subtitles throughout. It’s a thoughtful touch for a lovely movie whose message of family, friendship, and tolerance strikes a particular chord these days.
