At the Movies - "A Wrinkle in Time"

At the Movies - At the Movies - "A Wrinkle in Time"

She told us that they were one of the first aspects of the book to be removed from the script, as they were unnecessary to telling Meg's story in A Wrinkle in Time.

Needless to say, after a load of recent dystopian fantasies, the hope and color in the trailer for A Wrinkle in Time allowed that wonderfilled kid in me to surge back to life. DuVernay is expressing, through this flawed film, a vision of Hollywood to which we all should, and could, aspire.

"A Wrinkle In Time" hits theaters today! Instead, it's all a sugar coated surface.

Obviously, the movie is based on a beloved childhood classic - one that some have said would be nearly impossible to film.

For this, the long-awaited big-budget feature film adaptation of L'Engle's iconic tale, Disney needed a filmmaker as bold and bright as the story itself. I was reminded of this a couple of years back, when I got the heartbreaking news that she had lost her father. Which (Oprah Winfrey), another guardian-angel-like being, appears. Mrs.

The biggest thing about "A Wrinkle in Time" was that I was a kid that always did everything wrong...was very disheveled...very severely bullied... and I was very alone because of that and what I loved about Meg was she wasn't someone who had to change who she was fundamentally to be so extraordinary.

Ronaldo double gives Real narrow win over Eibar
The young Spaniard had a very good outing against PSG in what was only his second UEFA Champions League start of the season. Nothing less than Zidane's strongest starting XI will do if they are to beat Los Armeros on home turf.

An angry teen named Meg (Storm Reid) learns that her missing astrophysicist father (Chris Pine) is trapped on a planet of pure evil. "Scandal" star Bellamy Young was in one of the scenes. Pine has little screen time, but he makes every moment count. Which (Oprah Winfrey), who help Meg and her brother search for their father across space and time.

It's no secret that the marketing for the film is riding off how special it is to have a strong, young and African American female as the protagonist. That has been the mantra of the movie since the day we started. When the movie finishes, one feels like they've been taken on a journey, but not an especially fulfilling one.

The film flags most of all when the children travel to Camerzotz, a planet devoid of light, where the Mrs can not go. By then she had written, produced and directed two awesome films, about black women finding hope while experiencing grief and loss, all while maintaining a production and distribution company to finance and distribute underserved independent films made by women and people of color. She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality. Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who and Mrs Which are magical creatures made of light who take human form, with elaborate costumes and make-up, while playing fairy godmothers to Meg. Get it?!? Good grief. This is a PG movie and it feels like one, so audiences expecting something aimed at the YA or adult market may be disappointed, particularly given the marketing of the film, which felt more mature. Not a place somewhere over the rainbow you'd want to travel to. So many things are left unexplained.

But there the film's problems begin.

In the film, Mr. Murry says tessering exploits the connection between tiny particles linked by quantum mechanics. Ava and I like to talk about it in terms of love. Their space spanning journey starts out well enough, on a lovely green planet that is one of the more spectacular scenes of the film, but they soon find out that their search is really a rescue mission.
