Jackie

There are two movies in "Jackie." One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.

What's too young for "Hugo?"

From Arthur Huh

I acknowlege this is a difficult and impossibly loaded question, but to the extent you can answer it, literally, what would you say is the youngest age (in years) a person could be to watch "Hugo" in the the theater? And, by the way, if it helps, the reason I ask is, we are seriously (pretty much hell bent on) going to take our take our 4.5 year old daughter to see "Hugo."

Ebert: It contains no objectionable content. The film is complex enough for movie-loving adults, but quite accessible for bright kids. It may be that children below a certain age would find the sheer wonderment to be enough, coupled with the young ages of the two lively protagonists. The only problem might be the child's patience with a running time of slightly over two hours.
