Holiday gift ideas are in the air.
Here's a possibility for steampunkers...
by Brian Selznick
Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity.
But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy.
A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.
SEE the movie this month...

I plan on watching this clockworks-filled flick during the holiday break.
How about you? What holiday movies will you be catching in the theatre?
