HUGO is a 3 D adventure drama movie released in November 2011,  directed by one of Hollywood's most prominent and passionate film maker and director Martin Scorsese and written by John Logan. Hugo is based on a Carnegie prize winning children's book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret  by Brian Selznick. 

After the death of his father, Hugo Cabret, a young boy lives alone in the Paris train station, operating the stations clocks and survives on stolen pastries. The character role of Hugo is played by Asa Butterfield; remember him from the beautiful movie 'Boy with the striped Pyjamas?'.  

Anyway, Hugo's dream in life  is to repair a mysterious automaton he and his dad had been working on before his father's death.  Does he manage to achieve his dream?,  what are the perils and difficulties and adventures he faces on his quest to fulfill this dream? It's a beautiful movie. I have always been a fan of Martin Scorsese movies. Hugo has already received 11 academy award nominations, the most nominated film for 2011, that includes Best Film and Best Director; the Academy Awards function will be held on 

Cast includes Asa Butterfield as Hugo Cabret, Ben Kingsley, Chloe Grace Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ray Winstone, Jude Law.
