Now, as Oskar crosses the five New York boroughs in quest of the missing lock - encountering an eclectic assortment of people who are each survivors in their own way - he begins to uncover unseen links to the father he misses, to the mother who seems so far away from him and to the whole noisy, dangerous, discombobulating world around him.
Extremely loud and incredibly close
Not a movie I would watch a second time
The story of a boy coming to terms with the loss of his father. The Stephen Hawking world view of the family and the sad back story of the older generation make this a bleaker tale than it might be otherwise.
