Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer

I am rereading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close in preparation for the movie coming out in December. Still have  oodles of time. We've already started seeing trailers for the film which stars Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks and newcomer Thomas Horn who plays Oskar. Apparently Horn, who was twelve when they shot the film, was invited to audition based on his appearance on Teen Jeopardy. He won something like $30,000 so maybe he has a touch of Oskar's genius under his skin. Still can't quite wrap my head around Hanks as the father. In the book, the dad is 40, so there's that! 

Watch the trailer and see what you think. I've heard some snarky comments that since they moved the release date from January to December AND with the emotional subject matter they are piling it on, hoping to impress the other Oscar.
