Not In Front of the Kids!
With the success of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo—winning a Golden Globe for Best Director and now several Oscar nominations—Scorsese conquered a genre nobody suspected was on his “to do” list: the family picture. And he is now poised to win an arm-load of Academy Awards for a movie for and about kids. As Jimmy exclaimed in GoodFellas when Tommy was sassed by Spider, “What’s this world coming to?”
Well, Hugo certainly isn’t Martin Scorsese’s first film to feature children in important roles—not by a long shot. Hugo is simply the first Scorsese picture featuring kids where kids are welcome in the audience. Our slide show takes a look at Scorsese’s unflinching look at families and childhood through the decades. Like Scorsese’s films themselves, you should be thirteen or older to view this show.
