Extremely Loud and incredibly close ending
Such subjects overwhelm art. The artist's usual tactic is to center on individuals whose lives are a rebuke to the tragedy. They sidestep the actual event and focus on a parallel event that ends happily, giving us a sentimental reason to find consolation. That is small comfort to the dead. Indeed, intensely scrutinizing videos of bodies falling from one of the towers, Oskar fancies he can actually identify him. We see a lot of Thomas, his father, in flashbacks, and he is played by Tom Hanks , who has come to embody an American Everyman. As a father, Thomas was a paragon, spending countless quality hours with Oskar and involving the bright kid in ingenious mind games.
Typically, one of the secondary narrators provides one chapter for each chapter of Oskar's narration. Grandma 's story is told via letters she writes to Oskar, whereas Grandpa 's letters have been written over the course of decades, and are all addressed to his son Oskar's father, Thomas Schell Jr. Oskar lives in Manhattan with his mother, who is often absent because of work. His overly protective Grandma lives across the street. An extremely emotional and intelligent child, Oskar is often over-stimulated by his environment, and often falls victim to his many fears and phobias.
