I watched this movie primarily because Tom Hanks was listed as the "star", as in my mind, Tom Hanks could make ANY script interesting because of his immense talent. What came as a great surprise was the unforgivable omission of the young Tom Horn in the list of cast members. This young man was THE star of this poignant movie that dealt with a family who lost a very-much-loved member on 9/11. Tom Horn excellently played Oskar Schell the young son of Thomas Schell, played perfectly by Tom Hanks. Sandra Bullock played the mother/wife, Linda Schell; and Zoe Caldwell played Tom Hank's mother & Tom Horn's grandmother. As always, Tom Hanks is wonderful as a father & husband, and through flashbacks you experience the extremely tight bond he has with his son, Oskar, (Tom Horn). As a father, Tom Hanks encouraged his son to continually ask "never stop looking" when they played games and investigated theories. Young "Oskar" seemed to have some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, although a diagnosis is never validated; however, young Oskar states that Asberger's was ruled out. He is extremely bright, inquisitive & full of energy; but he seems to have problems relating emotionally to others, especially after the great trauma of losing his beloved father in "the worst day ever". The movie is definitely worth watching but I won't give any more info about the plot, as the viewer needs to experience every event as it happens. The reason I posted is because I'm appalled that Tom Horn was omitted from the cast would not have been a movie without him!!!moreless
