"A tough-minded but tender tale of suffering, confusion and redemption for children old enough to remember or know about the attack on the twin towers." - Ella Taylor, NPR

"Here's a tale that compacts the grief of an entire world, country, city, and thousands of loved ones left behind into the pain of one vulnerable, fictional boy." - Lisa Schwartzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

Oskar (Thomas Horn) is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can't be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father's closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him. Featuring Max Von Sydow, such an accomplished performer that he can be nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar without speaking a word.
