'A Wrinkle in Time' is a landmark film, but doesn't always work

A Wrinkle In Time is a kid's movie, directed by socially conscious filmmaker Ava DuVernay (Selma, The 13th) whose main objective with this big-budget fantasy would be to give young girls of colour a big-screen character that looks like them. Here's why I made this!

Both Black Panther and Wrinkle in Time are heralded for their diversity, both in front of and behind camera. "She did it. But you don't do that without it taking a toll on you, and eventually that catches up with you".

In that sense, she succeeded. - Rolling Stone " By turns gorgeous, propulsive and feverishly overwrought, A Wrinkle in Time is an otherworldly glitter explosion of a movie, the kind of picture that wears its heart on its tie-dyed sleeve".

That comes later, though.

Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, and Storm Reid spoke to us about the most unexpected hurdles they had to overcome on set, what sets A Wrinkle in Time apart from other sci-fi stories, and much more. Along with her prodigy of a younger brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and her schoolyard crush, Calvin (Levi Miller), Meg travels through a wrinkle in space-time to rescue her father from a monster before he's lost forever. "I got to really get in touch with when I was young and create that magic with this group of people", DuVernay said. (Niki Caro). But the result here is still very much in the Disney mould; you can feel the guiding hand of the director, but the even heavier hand of the studio over her, shaping the final vision. Which (Oprah Winfrey) is predictably charged with the anxious Meg (Storm Reid), who, like many of Oprah's followers, just needs a little boost of self-confidence before she's ready to stand up to a universe-devouring evil. Meg's classmate, Calvin (played by Levi Miller), follows the courageous Murry family along with the three fairies...

The kids get some much-needed assistance from the aforementioned angelic trio, who are brimming with warmth, wisdom and glittery lip gloss, and who answer to Mrs. "[Meg] says to her friend, Calvin, 'Do you trust me?' And he says, 'I trust you.' He follows a girl". Meg is feeling unworthy and Mrs.

That may be a weird way to sell this old adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, but I can't see two X-Men actors in a movie and not point it out. Visually, the film is very appealing using a lovely 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 also everyone behind the camera making the movie with the most diverse crew I have ever worked with in my life.

That's when her NASA scientist father (Chris Pine in a brief but strong appearance) disappeared, shortly after telling the world that people could travel the universe if they just find "the right frequency" and channel their thoughts in that direction.

Fantasy meets quantum entanglement in Disney's latest, A Wrinkle in Time. It is an ambitious, colorful and well acted movie, but is ultimately disappointing because the script by Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell misses the mark, and as the novel has been touted as a hard product to adapt, Ava also fails to do anything substantial with it.
