Hugo (2011) Poster


Chloë Grace Moretz: Isabelle



  • Isabelle : We could get into trouble.

    Hugo Cabret : That's how you know it's an adventure.

  • Isabelle : [last lines; at the part Isabelle smiles as she watches Hugo doing magic tricks, she sits and starts writing in her notebook] 

    [voice over] 

    Isabelle : Once upon a time, I met a boy named Hugo Cabret. He lived in a train station. Why did he live in a train station, you might well ask. That's really what this book is going to be about. And about how this singular young man searched to hard to find a secret message from his Father, and how that message lead his way, all the way home.

    [Screen leads up to where we can see the automaton sitting at a desk, perfectly fixed. The screen fades to black] 

  • Isabelle : This might be an adventure, and I've never had one before - outside of books, at least.

  • Isabelle : [watching A Trip to the Moon]  It's in color!

    Mama Jeanne : Of course it is, we tinted them. We painted them by hand, frame by frame.

  • Hugo Cabret : [Angry and disappointed that the automaton hasn't written anything of sense]  What an idiot! Thinking I could fix it!

    Isabelle : Hugo...

    [Hugo looses his composure and begins smashing various items in the room] 

    Hugo Cabret : It's broken! It's always been broken!

    [Sits in chair, covers his face and begins to cry] 

    Isabelle : Hugo, it doesn't have to be like this. You can fix it.

    Hugo Cabret : [crying]  You don't... you don't understand. I thought... I thought if I could fix it... then I wouldn't be so alone.

    [Hugo's sobs fill the room. Suddenly, the machine begins to draw again] 

    Isabelle : Hugo, Hugo look! It... it's not done!

    [they watch as the automaton begins to draw a picture] 

    Hugo Cabret : [voice breaking]  It's not writing! It... it's drawing!

    [they see it is a scene from the movie "A Trip to the Moon."] 

    Hugo Cabret : That's the movie my Father saw!

    [the automaton signs Georges Méliès'name] 

    Isabelle : [amazed]  Georges Méliès. That's Papa Georges name. Why would your Father's machine sign Papa Georges' name?

    Hugo Cabret : I don't know.

    [picks up drawing and looks at robot] 

    Hugo Cabret : Thank you.

    [turns to Isabelle] 

    Hugo Cabret : It was a message from my Father. And now I have to figure it out.

  • Isabelle : I think we should be very... clandestine!

    Hugo Cabret : [not knowing what "clandestine" means]  Um, okay...

  • Isabelle : [wonders if she dares to ask the question]  Where do you live?

    Hugo Cabret : [Hugo looks at her for a minute, then turns and points to the giant clock at the train station across the bridge]  There.

  • Isabelle : I enjoy the poetry of Christina Georgina Rossetti. She wrote, "My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is in a watered shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thickset fruit."
