On my last airplane flight I watched 1/3 of “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” As soon as I got home I updated my Netflix list to put the movie in the number 1 position. It arrived Saturday. I just watched the rest of the movie.
A wonderful movie. A sad movie. A happy movie.
Thomas Horn was just 13 when he played Oskar Schell, . His prior experience had been the role of the Grasshopper in a school production. I was blown away by his performance. He was the heart of the movie.
I checked imdb and saw that he’s in pre-production for “Joe’s Mountain.” Last year he had a role in “Space Warriors.” I might watch it just to see how he handled another role. I will look out for the release of his next movie.
If you haven’t seen the movie – you should. Have a box of tissues standing by.
