Tintin has a lot to answer for.

We finally get to see Martin Scorcese's Hugo, a genuine masterpiece and a paean to the pioneering Georges Melies, which holds the boys spellbound by the power of great storytelling alone -- no vampires, wizards, or giant robots.

But as Scorcese introduces us to the denizens of the 1930s Parisian train station, Secundus leans in and asks "These are real people, right?"

Yes. Although you probably know Sacha Baron Cohen best as a lemur.
