Todd Haynes' tender childhood mystery "Wonderstruck" drew tears and sparked Oscar buzz at its Cannes film festival premiere Thursday. An adaptation of Brian Selznick's young adult novel about two kids who run away to New York, one in 1927 and the other in 1977, "Wonderstruck" stars Julianne Moore in two roles – both a silent movie siren and a deaf 1970s-era New Yorker.A separate strand of the movie is set half a century earlier in which a girl, played by deaf actress Millicent Simmonds, goes searching for the actress mother (Moore) who abandoned her.Among 19 films vying for Cannes' coveted Palme d'Or, "Wonderstruck" marked the fourth collaboration between Haynes and Moore, whom the director called his "creative soul mate".
