“I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and types of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason, too…Maybe that’s why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do. Maybe it’s the same with people, if you lose your purpose it’s like your broken.”
Quote from the movie Hugo

The kids all went to bed so we actually had a quiet evening tonight and rented the movie Hugo. The preview looked like it would be good and it turned out it was really good. It has some great points about life, the quote above being one. The Plugged in review said it best “Hugo feels like a throwback to many of the beloved films of yesteryear. And at the same time, it serves as a powerful reminder that there are filmmakers in Hollywood who have the capacity to tell a spellbinding story without indulging in R-rated excess or crassly capitulating to commercialism. They just have to choose to do so.”
