Sometimes a movie just makes you happy. Hugo was that movie for me. Hugo is an orphan who is down on his luck but has an insatiable desire to fix things. He ends up fixing some very important things and making the world a better place for a bunch of people involved in the story. It's not a perfect movie, but it's probably the best thing I have seen that was made in 2011. See it. (Also, it's nominated for Best Picture, so it has that going for it.)
Hope it wins the Oscar. (Although there is practically zero chance of that happening.) It's heartwarming and sweet and also makes you feel good.
