First Official Trailer For WONDERSTRUCK, A Family Film With Oscar Ambitions (VIDEO)

“This is a story about what makes us different, and about having the courage to find the place where we belong.”

That’s easier said than done in this childhood fantasy that parallels two time periods (a girl in the 1920s, a boy in the 1970s). Based on Brian Selznick‘s best-selling children’s novel (he also of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”, which Martin Scorsese adapted into Hugo), this hails from director Todd Haynes, someone known for adult arthouse fare like Carol and Far From Heaven. Wonderstruck marks his first foray into PG territory.

Based on this first trailer, however (which debuts after a previously released movie clip and teaser), it’s clear that Haynes still wields his artfully precise auteurism.

Starring Oakes Fegley (Pete’s Dragon) as the boy and introducing Millicent Simmonds as the girl, this also co-stars Michelle Williams and frequent Haynes collaborator Julianne Moore.

Wonderstruck opens in theaters on October 20th, 2017.
