Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” selected as Royal Film Performance – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Martin Scorsese’s first foray into 3D filmmaking, “Hugo,” has been selected as this year’s Royal Film Performance, meaning it will screen before a prestigious audience on Nov. 28 at the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwell are on the list of expected attendees, according to THR. Scorsese’s film takes place largely in a Parisian train station where an orphan (Asa Butterfield) seeks to connect a broken machine to his lost father (Jude Law). The cast also includes Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Chloë Moretz, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Frances de la Tour and Richard Griffiths.

Yet “Hugo” isn’t British. The Royal Film Performance is a charity performance of a British film which is attended by members of the British Royal Family, and the proceeds are donated to the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, a charity which offers financial support to people from the film, cinema and television who encounter accident, illness, bereavement or unemployment.

Last year’s selection was “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” while Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones” was the 2009 selection.
