A Wrinkle in Time melds physics and fantasy into old-fashioned quest

A Wrinkle in Time melds physics and fantasy into old-fashioned quest

Visually, the film is very appealing using a attractive mix of vibrant colors and special effects to carry the viewer through this science fantasy based on the book which was originally published in 1962.

But it's an awfully big adventure, as Meg soon realizes.

Overall it is a handsome movie and has some fantastic visuals, but I feel it's definitely going to be enjoyed more by those who are unfamiliar with the book, and within the recommended age group.

A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay is a badass.

Just before Mr. Murry's disappearance, the couple adopted a young son, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), who grows up with Meg. "Who, and Mrs. Which - to travel across the universe to rescue him from a bad evil". But four years ago, their father (Chris Pine) disappeared mysteriously. However, the emotion doesn't entirely register, despite presenting a story about a daughter desperately trying to find her father.

Though he applauds actors Zach Galifianakis and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Joe Morgenstern calls A Wrinkle in Time "a magical mystery tour minus the magic and mystery, and a great disappointment", at the Wall Street Journal.

Zach Galifianakis is a disaster as a character named the Happy Medium, and when the devilish Red (Michael Pena) appears, he seems an terrible lot like King's "It" villain Pennywise, even though L'Engle's book precedes King's. When they need to get somewhere fast, Reese Witherspoon turns into a flying cabbage. The drawback to this is that they come so quickly and consume so much of the story's oxygen that it's hard to focus on the core mechanics of the plot, which largely feel something like: Meg doubts herself, the ladies tell her to believe in herself and love herself, they go somewhere unusual, repeat. However, rather than using tangible methods and metaphors, A Wrinkle in Time attributes negativity to an evil cloud. But I wonder if younger children will be just as bored as I was. As Mrs. Whatsit, the youngest of the three, Witherspoon gets most of the film's humor, and can be seen doing things like energetically playing with a garden hose in the background. As you can see in the trailer above, this version is, well, it is very much a TV movie from the early '00s.




The lead performance from Reid's Meg is the other highlight of A Wrinkle in Time.

That makes it an emotionally powerful movie in the hands of director Ava DuVernay ("Selma") and one that young people can deeply appreciate. Winfrey said. "I hadn't even read the script".

With "A Wrinkle in Time's" wrinkles lacking the crinkles, furrows and folds that make an effect-filled fantasy fantastic, I was able to sit back for most of it and ponder the depth of that statement. Across the board the dialogue from all three characters felt incredibly stiff and awkward when it came to the adults in this film.

As a result, "A Wrinkle in Time" feels disconnected, its emotional high points feel unearned and in spite of some dazzling visuals, the overall experience just feels shortchanged.

"Visuals were wonderful. Messages in line with the Disney and Lucasfilms brand".
