Hanks stars opposite Sandra Bullock and Thomas Horn as a father who dies during the September 11th attack of the World Trade Center in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Through the movie, his son battles his autism to search New York City for people who knew his father.
The very first time [Sandra and I] met was at [a] house with Thomas… we came out and we were going to prepare a meal. It was ‘Mom’, ‘Dad’, and young ‘Oscar’ and we made pasta and salad and garlic bread. I gotta tell you, it was the most pleasant time in a kitchen I’ve had.
