One Sentence: Your master crafted Oscar contender.
Release Date: 20-Jan-2012
Lets go over the list. Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, A child with a possible learning disability, 9/11, A dead father, Writer Eric Roth, and many others that have worked on Oscar nominated and award winning films. This is your power house collection of people and characters that are are part of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. After the year of crap that we have been given it is easily one of the top contenders for movie of the year. The weird thing is, that award would be for 2012. They could of lead all the nominations for 2011, but instead this movie is your first best movie of the year for 2012.
An emotional look into loss and family Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is not that hard of a pill to swallow. You would think it would be a punch to the stomach the whole movie but I was distracted. I had to see what happened next. I wanted to know more, I needed to make it to the end. The story was so powerful that the drive to see more overtook the sadness. It was very well balanced and wonderfully acted by everyone. Propelling the story forward in an amazing way. Everything about this movie is what you look for in one of the best movies of the year. It was wonderfully done.
So for your movie dollars if you want to see one of the best movies of 2012 right out of the gate, then this is full price movie. It is a little hard to watch, but no so much that it shouldn’t be seen in the theater. I think it is well worth the full price admission. Maybe a Sunday afternoon matinee would be good as well. But I would at least bring a couple of tissues.
