Beng Kingsley impersonates Georges Méliès and Chloë Grace Moretz, Isabelle, the girl who befriends Hugo. Sacha Baron Cohen is effective as the train station's policeman. The cinematography, costumes, sets, art direction, musical score, etc. are all fantastic. A truly magical film whihc deserved its A.A. nominations. It's a pity that two such endearing films, like this one and "The Artist" had to be released the very same year and compete against each other at the Oscars; both set around the same Era and dealing with the cherished subject of vintage Classic cinema....A film I'll revisit many times. I absolutely loved Méliès automaton!
