Wonder (2017)


“Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Lionsgate presents, in association with Walden Media and Participant Media, a Mandeville Films / Lionsgate production.”

It has been awhile since I have actually watched this movie. I remembered being engaged by this idyllic-problem(s)-and-their-ease-of-resolution-tale from beginning to end: from a child’s tale to sibling issues to adult challenges – nothing like my family! That is the fairy tale in my head. Seriously, I remember liking it.

I love Julia Roberts. I lust Owen Wilson. I liked the kid because he looked like a mini-Owen.

It remembering the moving doing a good job regarding an overall view and the different challenges being different can present. This is why I liked it the most.

Being different than others, I could identify with Auggie; unlike Auggie, I was not born to stand out.

But I still like the movie.
