Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close could be described as Extremely Sad and Incredibly Wonderful. It is a poignant 9/11 story of one family and the aftermath when the father dies in the tower. How the son, Oscar, copes with his great loss is painful to watch. Young Thomas Horn is remarkable in his portrayal, with Tom Hanks as dad and Sandra Bullock as mom.
Bring Kleenex as this movie will tug on your heartstrings as Oscar searches for a sign from his dad and for a way to stand up after his tragedy.
