“Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” stars Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Max von Sydow and young newcomer Thomas Horn. It’s the story of how the events of September 11th, 2001 affected one family, and one young boy in particular.
The film has been nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Max von Sydow. Yet it currently sits at 46% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes.
That’s an incongruity that I couldn’t wrap my head around… So I entered the film not knowing what to expect.
