Wonderstruck unfurls over multiple timelines, but isn’t a time-travel story in the conventional sense. Starring Haynes regular Julianne Moore alongside youngsters Ben Fegley and Millicent Simmonds, (who also stars in A Quiet Place), Wonderstruck is a mystery which reveals its secrets delicately.

Here, Haynes explains how New York itself plays an important part in the movie, and how he went about recreating the the city of the past.
