Amy's Old School Tips Get the Look Hugo

The movie Hugo, based on the amazingly illustrated book The Invention of Hugo Cabret . And the movie doesn't disappoint! I have to admit it is the first movie I have seen in the "new" present day 3-D and I was a bit concerned that I wouldn't enjoy that aspect! But, It was done marvelously! There wasn't tons of things popping out at you but the city and atmosphere was deep and wonderful. The characters were also developed perfectly! I enjoyed every moment of this movie it is a MUST see!
Winner of the 2008 Caldecott Medal

Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton. IMBD  
The Movie Is set to release this November 2011.
Now you can get the look for Hugo
from the Vintage Market Team!

French Paris 1957 Mini Postcard Flip Booklet By: ArtistiekEndeavors

The book is totally worth picking up whether or not you have kids! It is a really fast "read" as there aren't many words, the illustrations tell this fabulous story! I love period films and you can't beat the 30's for a great look! See all the items the VMTeam has to offer from the 1930's!
