Julianne Moore plays a dual role in the film chosen to be the Centerpiece of the 2017 New York Film Festival.

Adapted from a young-adult novel by The Invention of Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick, "Wonderstruck" is described as "an all-ages enchantment, entirely true to director Todd Haynes's sensibility: an intelligent, deeply personal, and lovingly intricate tribute to the power of obsession."
