This movie was absolutely amazing! Thomas Horn had what was in my opinion one of the best breakout performances ever by a young actor! This incredibly emotional story, hooks you almost instantly and keeps your heart in the story until the end. This story is of one family's heartbreaking struggle through one of the gravest tragedies we have experienced in our lifetime. It will touch you in ways you wouldn't expect a movie to be able to do. Some of the most dynamic scenes performed by a child actor will play out right before your eyes and all the while you will be sad and at the same time amazed at how incredibly well this young man can make you believe his feelings are real to him. There are several relationships that are interesting and some you want to watch grow. Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock add remarkable talent to the movie, but it is the young Thomas Horn and the elder Max Von Sydow that steal the show. Mr Sydow deserved the Oscar Nomination he received for his portrayal in this film. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close will not disappoint you.
