I don't think I was quite as emotionally impacted by this story as I was by Selznick's previous work, but this is still a moving tale, told through a combination of words and pictures that bring together the lives of two characters. The underlying theme of this story seems similar to Huge Cabret, but finding out who you are and discovering a culture where you belong are universal in nature, so that makes sense. I love how all the threads of this story come together, and reading about the research that Selznick completed to develop the story was just as fascinating to me as reading the story was.
