Hugo 3D. a movie I liked|
I just finished reading the book a little while ago. The movie follows it very closely; some of the harsher bits are toned down, and the Station Inspector's role is expanded. He made me think of Javert too, with his obsessive pursuit of Hugo.
In the book, Hugo saves all his uncle's paychecks; I don't remember if the movie made this point. Back then the failure to cash checks wouldn't have been noticed as quickly as it would today.
I really, really, liked the movie.
