The October issue’s cover story — written by cinematographer Ed Lachman, ASC — offers a first-person account of the making of director Todd Hayne’s latest feature, Wonderstruck. “Based on Brian Selznick’s partially illustrated youth-oriented novel of the same name,” Lachman writes, “Wonderstruck masterfully interweaves the stories of two 12-year-olds in two separate cinematic time languages and time periods: Ben (Oakes Fegley) in 1977 and Rose (Millicent Simmonds) in 1927. Rose was born deaf, and Ben becomes deaf following an accident. Both children run away to New York City, tracing the clues within their personal histories to find what they’re missing and longing for in their lives — for Rose, her estranged mother (Julianne Moore), and for Ben, the father he's never known.”

Complementing Lachman’s story, we here present an image gallery of frame grabs and behind-the-scenes photos from the film.
