Oscar® winners Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock unite for the first time in this moving post-9/11 drama. Based on the bestselling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything Is Illuminated) and adapted by Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), this prestige drama follows a nine-year-old boy (newcomer Thomas Horn) who finds a mysterious key that once belonged to his father, a victim of the September 11th terrorist attacks. With childhood determination and inventiveness, the boy sets out on a quest to find what secrets the key unlocks as well as make sense of the loss of his father. Produced by Scott Rudin (True Grit, The Social Network), this unforgettable film is soulfully directed by Stephen Daldry, the acclaimed filmmaker of The Reader and The Hours.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close has a story worth telling, but it deserves better than the treacly and pretentious treatment director Stephen Daldry gives it.

Drama about child's 9/11 loss stirs up sadness.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is based on the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer about an 11-year-old who is likely on the autism spectrum who loses his father in the Sept. 11 attacks -- and how he copes with the loss a year later. Some scenes include graphic 9/11 imagery and news clips and may be too intense for young children. (If you watch with your teens, it's a good idea to have a conversation about 9/11 beforehand.) There's also some swearing (including "f--k") and drinking. Although the film centers around loss and tragedy, many adult characters are strong role models, and there's a message about learning to accept the answers that life gives you.
