Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close….all I can say is WOW. this movie was incredible! With a strong cast of Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock & John Goodman, it’s amazing how this little boy Thomas Horn steals the lime light. It is a story told through the eyes of a special child who is somewhere on the autistic spectrum. His struggle trying to make sense of something that literally doesn’t make sense to him. How he tries to cope with losing his dad in the horrific 911 burning towers. He finds a key in his dad’s belongings which sets him on an adventure…he vow’s to find what the key will fit.
As in every movie there are a few things that seem a bit odd…like it seems his mother isn’t watching out for him, his crazy New York adventures (for a 9 yr old) & as I know nothing about any forms of Autism, I had to believe how it was portrayed.
A must see for sure!
