The Invention of Hugo Cabret Book vs. Movie

The Invention of Hugo Cabret Book vs. Movie

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brain Selznick was turned into a movie in 2011, it’s name was shortened to just Hugo, and I have seen it many times since. I loved the book immensely and the book is so unique and beautiful, I was worried how they would move it from a page to a screen. But they did a great job. Hugo is about a boy named Hugo. He lives in the train station, after his father died he goes to live with his uncle. His Uncle is the caretaker for all the clocks in the central train station. Hugo only brings one thing with him, the automaton he was working on with his father. His Uncle teaches Hugo the way the clocks works and how to keep the station clocks running. It is important for them to be on time in a train station. When Hugo’s uncle doesn’t return one night Hugo just keeps the clocks running, because he doesn’t want to end up in the orphanage. Hugo’s life turns into a dance of avoiding the Station Inspector, keeping the clocks running, and trying to fix his automaton, his last connection to his father. This story is heartwarming and is a must read.The book is amazing in the way that it goes back and forth between pictures and words, and the movie did a really good job of still conveying the same ideas. I would recommend this book to everyone, it is one of the best books I have read and a great movie.(One of my favorite books to movies, nothing was lost in translation).
