Selznick's original story (yes, he's related to film giant David O. Selznick) cleverly weaves the stories of young Hugo and Georges Méliès, one of the seminal figures in filmmaking, who made an early sci-fi fantasy with A Trip to the Moon in 1902. Méliès focused on the connection between film and dreams, and Scorsese reinforces that link with this dreamily enthralling film.
Hugo (Asa Butterfield) must weather the death of his beloved clockmaker father (Jude Law) and the disappearance of his cranky Uncle Claude (Ray Winstone). His uncle was in charge of the Paris train station's elaborate clock tower, and Hugo soon learns the complex machinations required for keeping the clocks running.

A resilient boy, Hugo is bent on discovering the mystery surrounding an automaton that his father was tinkering with before he died.
He also must escape the clutches of the overzealous station inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen), who is particularly keen on tossing unaccompanied children found roaming the railway station directly into orphanages.
In the process of eluding the grasp of the inspector, Hugo runs afoul of a terse shopkeeper (Ben Kingsley) who nurses a big secret. He also meets the shopkeeper's eccentric ward Isabelle (Chloë Grace Moretz). Despite some frightening interactions with the taciturn merchant, who accuses him of stealing, Hugo becomes friends with Isabelle and introduces her to the joy of going to the movies. That leads to a major revelation as the film unfolds.
Scorsese shot this film in 3-D and has taken a technology that is too often employed but rarely used well and put it to its best use. Then again, if a master filmmaker like Scorsese can't use the technique brilliantly, who can? What he creates is a wondrous blend of fantasy and mystery that will appeal to adults as well as children.
One 3-D scene in particular stands out, in which a turn-of-the-century film by Auguste and Louis Lumière (Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat) is projected so convincingly that audiences leap back in horror at the sight of the train barreling toward them on the screen.
Scenes replicating Méliès' early films also are a delight for moncler jackets.
