With 'Wonderstruck,' Todd Haynes and his creative team unite eras

“Wonderstruck” is a film that takes place in two time periods, 50 years apart. In 1927, a young girl travels alone to New York City; in 1977, a young boy does the same. The mysterious connection between their stories becomes the movie’s driving force.

What the picture also united was a creative team of collaborators that director Todd Haynes trusted to bring this unusual story to the screen. Cinematographer Ed Lachman, costume designer Sandy Powell, production designer Mark Friedberg and composer Carter Burwell all have longstanding relationships with Haynes, and they have come to collaborate with one other in ways that are unusual.
