Hugo gets up to Friday mischief
August 21, 2012 by James
This Friday, August 24, the ‘2012 Movies in the Park’ series will be presenting the film ‘Hugo’ at the Wesley Lynn Park located at 12901 Frontier Parkway in Oregon City. The movie begins at dusk, approximately 8:30pm, but the concessions open around 7:30 pm to allow families to purchase their goodies before the film.
Hugo is an adapted Brian Selznick novel created by Martin Scorsese. In the film, Asa Butterfield is an orphan who resides in a train station after being shipped to live with a drunken uncle when his father dies in a fire. While there, Hugo learns to wind the massive clocks that keep the station running on time. After his uncle vanishes, Hugo keeps winding the clocks hoping not to be caught. Each time a clock stops, Hugo resorts to stealing tools, gears, and other parts from the local toy shop owner’s store in front of the station. When the storekeeper catches him, he threatens to turn him in to the train station’s police officer, who always sends orphaned children away to the orphanage. Fortunately for Hugo, the shopkeeper is a friendly soul and soon they are great friends. That is as much as the group wants to revel at the moment, so as not to spoil the surprise.
