A Wrinkle in Time: A Beautiful, But Surface-Level, Film

But it all starts on Earth, with Meg Murry (luminous and talented young actress Storm Reid), a teen with unrealized potential because she's been disconnected from friends and school for four years. She's given up hope of ever seeing him again, but then her little brother Charles Wallace introduces her to three unusual women who take them both on an adventure across space in an attempt to save the universe from the dark. Not only that, this Meg hears that she is powerful, that she is special, that everything she thought was a fault is a strength. "She told me, 'You're going to stay the same but the people around you are going to change.' I feel like I'll be recognized more once the movie comes out but I'm still the same girl".

The soundtrack opens with "Flower of the Universe" by Sade, although track one is the "No I.D. Remix" while track seven presents it as originally recorded. Her character on "The Mindy Project", which wrapped in November, notably wore vibrant outfits that matched her personality. So for her, I felt [her costumes] would be more ethnic somehow. She quotes Shakespeare, Gandhi and other notable figures throughout the film.

Although DuVernay did not reveal why she would not want to direct a "Star Wars" or a Marvel movie, there are speculations that fitting into such giant franchises is just not her kind of thing. While he'd be at the top of my list for a new Children of the Corn or Pet Cemetery film, his youthful lack of enunciation made him challenging to understand only adding to my frustration. In certain moments, it feels a lot like "The NeverEnding Story"; in others, it's closer to the oddball Robin Williams vehicle "Toys". I was fighting the doubt within myself because it was my first lead role, so I was really nervous. "A Wrinkle in Time" has three: wise Mrs. "I mean historically, we always have, you know, a white guy like heading studios and leading movies, so naturally the thing we see on screen are masculinity and whiteness". I am also looking at what is it to bring hope.

Similar to working with these awesome actresses, what was it like working with Ava DuVernay and what did you learn from her? Oh my God. Well it's just, she's Oprah. She walks the walk that she talks.

Blanchard returned to watch some of the action after she wrapped, including scenes utilizing effects she didn't have first-hand experience with during her own scenes. "She has a attractive vision and a handsome mind". I met her in 2013, but shes one of those people who you feel like youve always known, ? the director wrote in a letter for ESPN.

There is a distasteful amount of predictability to the movie, but it's forgivable since this is a family/children's film.

"Her wardrobe was fantastic, and we pull from the wardrobe", LaLette Littlejohn, head of the makeup department, said of Winfrey's costumes. Hopefully I'll be able to become a future filmmaker, and I am producing stuff right now.

That's a shame because there are neat messages about how children see themselves and good vs. bad in the world.

"Because it is not just one thing".

I want the audience to know that they can be themselves and they are flawless just the way they are, they shouldn't let anyone tell them any different. I loved movies like Labyrinth or The Neverending Story that took awkward, smart kids out of their normal lives and into odd new universes with uncertain rules and surprising, colorful characters. In its long shelf life, "A Wrinkle in Time" has taught millions of children and adults about the evils of conformity, the anguish of losing a parent (temporarily, in this case) and the gratifying return to the comforts of home.
