* ArtisticLicenseHistory: According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_M%C3%A9li%C3%A8s#Early_film_career The Other Wiki,]] sets and costumes for Méliès' movies were painted in shades of gray (not in their natural colors, as depicted) to avoid unpredictable tones in black-and-white film. The film did flip two things from [[spoiler: Méliès' life. In reality, he burned his films and sold his props.]] The film shows it happening the other way around.

->If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from, you look around... this is where they're made.
-->-- Creator/GeorgesMelies

''Hugo'' (2011) is the first family film directed by Creator/MartinScorsese, written by [[WesternAnimation/{{Rango}} John]] [[TheAviator Logan]] and produced by Johnny Depp. It is based on the Caldecott Medal-winning children's novel ''Literature/TheInventionOfHugoCabret'' by Brian Selznick, grandnephew of legendary film producer David O.Selznick. It stars [[Literature/TheBoyInTheStripedPyjamas Asa Butterfield]] as an orphan boy who lives in a train station in 1930s Paris and whose only companion is an automaton discovered by his late father. He devotes his life to making sure the clocks run on time and to gradually repairing the automaton, under the belief that the message it is designed to write is a message from his father.

** Hugo's clockwork boy is based on [[http://www.fi.edu/learn/sci-tech/automaton/automaton.php?cts=instrumentation Maillardet's automaton,]] a real-life writing automaton whose history parallels its movie counterpart: It was built by a mechanical genius, damaged in a fire, donated to a museum, had its origins forgotten, and was eventually repaired by a clockwork enthusiast, whereupon its automated drawings provided a clue to its maker's identity.

* MoodWhiplash: The Station Inspector's initial conversation with Lisette is played for broad laughs, until his leg brace suddenly locks up again. [[spoiler: Cue the very not-funny revelation that his leg was badly injured in fighting during WorldWarOne, which is the first sign of his HiddenDepths]].
