amazing adaptation of the book! stayed as close to the book as possible...cant wait to see what disney does with the rest of the series!!
BETTER THAN PERFECT!
If there’s a secret to a successful screen adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, it’s still secret. Disney’s version of the Madeleine L’Engle young-adult novel is a magical mystery tour minus the magic and mystery, and a great disappointment, since there were so many reasons to root for the film’s success.
Director Ava DuVernay emphasises an emotional clarity and narrative simplicity that allows the book’s sci-fi examination of friendship, family and forgiveness to resonate with almost mythic force.
For all of Wrinkle’s unevenness, DuVernay still manages to draw out some glimpses of more intimate beauty, the kind that one expects from the filmmaker.

Movie Info & Cast
An impossible story gets an incredible adaptation, courtesy of director Ava DuVernay’s singular vision. Thirteen-year-old Meg Murry (Storm Reid) struggles in her day-to-day life after her scientist father (Chris Pine) goes missing… until three mysterious beings (played by Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling) offer her the chance to travel across space to rescue him.
Protip: when Oprah urges you to be a warrior – you listen!
Joined by her brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and friend Calvin (Levi Miller), Meg visits incredible planets to combat the evil that threatens the universe using the only weapon she has at her disposal: love. Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Peña, and André Holland, DuVernay’s take on Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel is vibrant and heartwarming from start to finish. A timeless tale of light vs. darkness, A Wrinkle In Time reminds us that the most epic conflicts are the ones in our own hearts – and those conflicts are truly universal.
