UNLOCK THE SECRET...
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs this audacious adaptation of Brian Selznick's award winning novel, a magical, mysterious adventure and an exhilarating ode to cinema itself.
Hugo Cabret is an orphan, living secretly in the walls of a Paris train station, tending to the many clocks, stealing what he needs to survive and hiding from the ruthless station inspector. But his clandestine life and precious secrets are threatened when he is caught thieving by the bitter old man who runs a toy booth at the station, and Hugo's world becomes enmeshed with that of the shop owner and his bookish granddaughter. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father are all connected to a place where dreams are made.
A heartfelt love letter to the magic of moving pictures, Hugo is a triumph of imaginative movie making and a gift for film-lovers everywhere. This epic Arrow Video edition marks the film's debut on stunning 4K UHD and comes packed with a bounty of new extras.
