Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed novel Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck tells the story of two children, living in different time periods, that share a unique connection.
A “first look” clip has just been released ahead of its forthcoming premiere at the 70th Festival de Cannes next week. The clip, though simple in nature, displays the unique style and tone that Haynes has chosen in delivering his split era tale.
The film marks the fifth collaboration between director Haynes and star Julianne Moore, the last of which (2014’s Still Alice) won Moore an Academy Award for Best Actress.
Released by Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions Wonderstruck co-stars Michelle Williams, Oakes Fegley and Millicent Simmonds and is set to hit theaters on October 20.
