A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

How far would you go to help someone you love?  Would you follow their cry for help across the universe…if you could?

A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time is the family movie you have been waiting for. It is an emotionally stirring journey through the human condition that will energize and captivate you. The movie is a must see for teens and tweens.

I went into A Wrinkle in Time with no knowledge of the storyline. I have never read the book and I thought the movie looked a little gaudy and strange in the trailer. However, from the first few minutes of the movie, I was hooked. The movie is about family, sacrifice, understanding your worth, and choosing to be a warrior for good.

A Wrinkle in Time is an absolutely beautiful film, both in content and cinematography. There is much to see and learn. The media screening I attended included a short clip from Ava DuVerney, the movie’s director. She shared that she wanted to create a movie about joy and she invited the audience to watch it through the eyes of your 11 or 12 year old self. I took her advice and prepared myself for something I hoped would be special.  I cried tears of joy and love in this movie more than once and I do not often cry at movies.

A Wrinkle in Time gracefully deals with so many issues: bullying, adoption, loss, self-hate, evil, selfishness, abuse, and forgiveness. I am sure that some will see political themes in the film, but I felt A Wrinkle in Time transcended that and reminded us all that we need to embrace the light in humanity and try to understand one another. A Wrinkle in Time is a beautifully diverse movie with a big heart.

A Wrinkle in Time is a Wizard of Oz or Neverending Story for this generation of teens and older tweens. If they only watch one movie this year, I hope it is this one. However, it might be a little scary for younger children as there are some perilous scenes and a violent attempt on a main character’s life. You know your kid best.
