Losing a parent to the attacks on 9/11 seems like the hardest thing to deal with. As Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close illustrates, it becomes infinitely more difficult when that parent is Tom Hanks. He seems like such a fun dad and now he’s gone and we all miss his voice. Al Qaeda will pay in blood.
The drama looks like an interesting adventure. After losing his Tom Hanks in the attacks on the World Trade Center, a young boy is convinced that his father left a hidden message for him somewhere in New York City. He explores the five boroughs in search of a lock that fits the key his dad left behind, and moves past his complicated feelings of loss to see that there is more to the world around him. It also looks emotionally draining. He was such a fun dad.
