"Hugo"

(Please note this will not be the 3D version of this film)

Hugo is a 2011 American  historical adventure drama film directed and co-produced by Martin Scorsese and adapted for the screen by John Logan. Based on Brian Selznick's novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, it is about a boy who lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station in Paris in the 1930s. A co-production between Graham King's GK Films and Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil, the film stars Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, Helen McCrory, and Christopher Lee.

The film was received with critical acclaim, with many critics praising the visuals, acting, and direction.  At the 84th Academy Awards, Hugo won five Oscars—for Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects—and its eleven total nominations (including Best Picture) was the most for the evening.  Hugo was also nominated for eight BAFTAs and won two, and was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, earning Scorsese his third Golden Globe Award for Best Director.
