In Paris in 1931, an orphan named Hugo Cabret, who lives in the walls of a train station, is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.
In the last shot of this movie, of the automaton, the costume designers made a little tuxedo for the automaton to wear, because the last scene is a party, and the costume designers felt that the automaton should be dressed up just like everyone else. Martin Scorsese decided against this because he wanted the audience to see all of the gears of the automaton at the end.
We could get into trouble.
Hugo Cabret: That's how you know it's an adventure.
When Hugo says to the automaton 'Is this your card?' (at around 33 mins), the card is in his right hand but in the next shot it's in his left hand.
There is only one opening credit, the film's title, which does not appear until nearly 15 minutes into the film.
