“I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and types of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason, too."
~from The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick 

A movie about a young maker and about the lasting, if sometimes intangible, rewards of creating.

It is based on the book of the same name.
