Strong departure by Scorsese

One of the better films of 2011, Martin Scorsese departs from his usual type of film and delivers Hugo which is...well, it's a little difficult to describe Hugo. I'd classify it more as a drama, which I wasn't expecting. There's a deep emotional connection with the viewer as Scorsese presents a lonely boy who is looking for some sort of companionship. Great acting all around, as well as a great looking film in terms of cinematography, art direction, and costumes. Well done, Marty.
