First Look -Wonderstruck 

Todd Hayne’s Wonderstruck will premiere at Cannes later this month. Wonderstruck already has some Oscar buzz, but the reactions from Cannes will either push it’s chances at an Oscar forward or kill them. 
Wonderstruck is Todd Haynes’ follow-up to his 2015 film Carol.  It is based on Brian Selznick’s award-winning book of the same name. 

The film takes place in both 1927 and 1977. In the earlier time period, Rose runs away from her New Jersey home to find her idol Lillian Mayhew . In the later time frame, Ben also runs away to New York after his mother’s death in search of his missing father.

Deaf actress Millicent Simmonds plays Rose in the film. Rose’s half of the film will be dialogue-free. It has been reported that her portion of the film will also feature an unprecedented amount of deaf actors. 

Wonderstruck also stars Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams.

The first-look footage and poster were released this week.
