A Wrinkle In Time was one of my favorite books when I was younger. I remember reading it for school and instantly loving it. In fact, I finished reading it before the time I was required to. I knew going in to this movie that it was not going to be exactly like the book – something that I welcome in films. When I sit down to watch a movie for the first time, it is nice to know that some things will surprise me since it will not follow the story I already know to a T. I had heard mixed reviews on Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time, so I went in with lower expectations. Thanks to that, I really enjoyed the movie!
I was a little worried that my young daughters would be a little scared during this movie, but I watched it ahead of time and thought they might be able to handle it. I am glad I let them see this movie because it quickly became a favorite of my (nearly) 7 year old. And good news – my 5 year old was not scared at all, although she did get distracted and bored about half way through. Which honestly, for her is pretty good when it comes to a “real people movie” – she is still in to the cartoons.
About A Wrinkle In Time
From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
