Rated PG-13 · 129 minutes · 2012

Oh the pathos! Led by director Stephen Daldry aka Mr. Sensitive (The Reader, Billy Elliot), an emotionally wrecked nine-year-old New Yorker named Oskar Schell (Thomas Horn) undertakes a quest to discover the real meaning of his father’s (Tom Hanks) death in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Mawkish and heavy-handed when it doubtless intends to be heartbreaking and uplifting, Oskar’s quixotic search cuts a broad swath across the NY metro area, with predictable but watchable perfs by Max von Sydow, Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis, and Jeffrey Wright as fellow sufferers. And little Oskar learns valuable life lessons. Newbie actor Horn gets under our skin through a combination of pity and sheer irritation — but the larger film itself doesn’t. Blame writers Jonathan Safran Foer (novel) and Eric Roth (adaptation) (129 min.)
