Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck
Sep 28 – Oct 15, 2017

 

Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck has been announced to be screened as the centerpiece selection of New York Film Festival’s 55th edition at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Wonderstruck, based on a novel by Brian Selznick, tells the parallel stories of a young boy in the late ’70s Midwest who looses his hearing and a deaf girl in New York in the ’20s as they both navigate their lives in search of answers with a certain presentiment of their mysterious connection. Poetically reminiscent of Ildikó Enyedi’s My Twentieth Century about separated twins whose lives intersect (nearly) as their crossing trains pause side by side at a station, Haynes is no stranger to the period piece, the double roles, the parallel lives, or even the same story told in completely different variations, as with I’m Not There (2007), the supposed depiction of the different facets of the life of Bod Dylan, recently renewed in interest after Dylan’s Nobel Prize win last year which no one saw coming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Todd Haynes / Wonderstruck

After several years working the in the documentary and TV series world and returning to the big screen in 2015 with Carol which also screened at NYFF receiving 6 Oscar nominations, Haynes, for such a fiercely independent director, seems to be making an auspicious re-entry.

“We’re so pleased and proud that Wonderstruck has been selected for the Centerpiece slot at this year’s New York Film Festival,” said Haynes. “There’s no more meaningful place or audience with which to share our film that is a tribute both to the history of New York City and to cinema.”
