Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close features a young boy who documents his journey using his grandfather’s old Exakta camera. Read on to find out about his Lomo walk!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of last year’s top contenders for Best Picture during the 2011 Academy Awards. It’s based on the novel of the same title by Jonathan Sarfran Foer. It’s about a young boy’s quest to find meaning to an old key left by his father who died during the 9/11 attack.
The cast includes Tom Hanks (Thomas Schell), Sandra Bullock (Linda Schell), and Thomas Horn as the main protagonist (Oskar Schell) who has Asperger’s Syndrome.
Throughout his journey to find the lock where the old key belongs to, he brings along an Exakta camera (which belonged to his grandfather) to document all the people he had met along the way. Later on, he compiled all the pictures into a book and gave it the title Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
