Print this article Adapting a highly-regarded book to the big screen is a tall order. Not only can it be difficult to stay true to the source material, but if it falls flat directors risk offending a legion of the novel's loyal fans. Such was not the fate of "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," which was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. The new release DVD hits shelves March 27.
Oskar Schell (Thomas Horn), a precocious elementary school student, has his life thrown into turmoil when his father Thomas (Tom Hanks) is killed in the September 11 attacks. In the coming months, Oscar struggles to cope with the loss until one day he finds a mysterious key in his father's closet and decides to find out what it fits.
Oskar searches in vain for what the key opens, and just when he's about to give up hope he stumbles across what he believes to be a clue left by his father. Will his hunt end in happiness or misery?
