Hugo Cabret
Georges Meiles
Hugo is played by Asa Butterfield and is a character that is looked down on by outsiders in the beginning of the movie as he is a "ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF."
Hugo grows throughout the movie and has big changes at certain points.
All photos in the character development category are from
One of the major turning points is when
Isabelle and Hugo go to the movies. It doesn't follow the book exactly as they don't get snuck in by Etienne but it is still a big moment for Hugo. This is when Hugo really becomes friends with Isabelle and begins to let go of his solitude and begins to let go of his father.
Another big development for
Hugo is when he finishes the automaton. This is when he truly lets go of his father. He completes the Automaton without his father and without his father's notebook. He also becomes much closer to Isabelle which is symbolized by the key that is given to Hugo from Isabelle. This part is a little different from the novel which may mean that Scorsese is trying to build some of his own symbolism.
Mini Bio
"About Hugo Cabret." http://theinventionofhugocabret.com/about_hugo_intro.htm., n.d. Web. 31 Jan. 2016.
The greatest supporting role within Hugo is played by Chloe Moretz as Isabelle. Scorsese consistently build's on her character throughout the movie. Isabelle acts as a sidekick to Hugo. She understands him and wants to help. She's an orphan just like him and knows what its like.
Scorsese really starts to build Isabelle
as a character when she first meets Hugo and she is first introduced. He shows how curious she is and how adventurous she can be. She continues to grow and grow throughout the movie and become closer to Hugo based off of the initial viewing.
Isabelle really begins to change when the automaton signs the bottom of the drawing. She turns from a curious girl to a private investigator. She begins to take significant actions on her curiosities. The fact that her Godfather was involved in the automaton drove her curiosity to a new level and she became a stronger character because of it.
Film Score is background music, or film music originally written specifically to accompany the film.
Georges is a character played by Ben Kingsley. Scorsese first introduces him as a grumpy old man that olds a toy shop. In the beginning of the movie he has very little role despite his importance.
Georges really changes when all the paintings came crashing out of the armoire. When he is told how much the public respects the remainings of his films, his self esteem sky-rockets. He becomes his former self and realizes that his hard work is appreciated. He took a little convincing but his changed was the largest in the entire movie. At this point in the movie Scorsese basically makes him the main character of the movie because of the severity of his importance. Scorsese reveals the entire history of Georges shortly after and the old grumpy main changes into one of the most revolutionary directors of all time.

"One particular instrument that I thought would be ideal to use in “Hugo” was the Ondes Martenot, an electric instrument that was developed during the 1920’s, which is the same period the movie’s set in. You might call it a French Theremin. And since the movie was dealing with mechanical inventions of the period, the Ondes fit perfectly into “Hugo”’s world."
