Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Rated PG-13 129 min. 2011



The 9/11 attacks are a cinematic third-rail used as the milieu for films both brilliant (United 93) and inept (World Trade Center; Remember Me). The premise of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is apposite and affecting: A 10-year-old boy copes with the loss of his father, who perished on the 105th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center. However, the problems with this pious adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's Oprah-approved 2005 novel are both extreme and incredible. This fairy tale of an unsupervised child roaming the streets of New York City allows director Stephen Daldry to foist a greeting card cross-section of the five boroughs under the guise of communal uplift.
