ABSTRACT
In this film adaptation of the 2005 novel of the same name, nine-year old Oskar Schell -- believed by many viewers and critics to have Asperger's syndrome, though the movie never clarifies this to be the case -- attempts to cope with his father's death in the attacks of September 11, finding his bemusement and confusion at the circumstances life has handed him compounded when he finds an enigma wrapped in the form of a note discovered in a vase in his father's old closet. Themes of compassion, understanding, and intrigue are touched upon as the film follows Oskar around in his attempts to seek answers from fellow New Yorkers. Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor.
