Hugo │ Asa Butterfield

"Hugo" is a remarkable movie that was directed by Martin Scorsese and stars the enigmatic Asa Butterfield as Hugo.  It was based on Brian Selznick's wonderful novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret".  The book won the 2008 Caldecott Medal, and was the first novel to do so, as the Caldecott Medal is usually awarded only for picture books.  Asa Butterfield's portrayal of Hugo is so real, haunting, and believable that it touches the soul.  I have watched "Hugo" on my iPod Touch many times, and I still get very emotional at the end of the film.  By-the-way, the iPod Touch is my preferred device for watching movies.  The picture is so clear, and the medium is so intimate, that I feel like I am right in the film.  "Hugo" is a must see movie and I recommend it to all the fans of Angel Watchers.
