A Wrinkle In Time brings out the inner child and warrior that is inside of us all. In the movie, we meet Meg Murry and her little brother Charles Wallace. Meg, played by the young and talented Storm Reid, is struggling at school and at life in general ever since her scientist father, Mr. Murry, has gone missing. Charles Wallace is an extremely smart, kind, and encouraging little brother, who just wants to help his sister be happy again. We soon find out that Mr. Murry discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tessering to travel there. With the help of the Mrs; Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which that is, the children set out on an epic adventure to save their father and stop the evil it.
Director Ava DuVernay did a marvelous job bringing all of the characters and the story alive from the pages to the big screen. It was well adapted and I loved the overall message that with love and the willingness to fight and stand for that love, you can overcome. Meg, her brother, and her classmate faced many obstacles, but together they were able to overcome each one. It becomes clear that everyone has something they are dealing with, no one is perfect, but we have the ability to look over our faults and the faults of others to see the good. I absolutely loved the amazing Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which. Check out this fun clip of Mrs. Whatsit arriving at the Murry house.
These mysterious astral travelers heard the cry of these children wanting to find their father and their father crying out for help. They did not simply come to the rescue, but showed Meg that she has it within herself to fight for her father, faults and all. Nothing is more magnificent than an elaborate and elegantly dressed Oprah as Mrs Which, graciously imparting her wisdom upon young Meg as she doubts herself and those around her. Mrs. Whatsit, played by Reese Witherspoon, is silly, quirky, and can change form as needed. Mrs. Who, played by the brilliant Mindy Kaling, only speaks in borrowed words, which is really neat. I loved every quote that she spoke, but my favorite was “Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.” – Khalil Gibran, Lebanese. Meg was able to become her own hero and fight for what mattered most to her.
The cinematography and costuming are stunning. This was an incredible movie to see in IMAX! I would certainly recommend this as a great family friendly movie. A Wrinkle In Time is a very cool, very fun action/sci-fi meets heartfelt story, and one that you will surely want to see! See the movie now playing everywhere, and download activity sheets here!
