A Wrinkle in Time

The Biggest Challenges in Making A WRINKLE IN TIME

A Wrinkle In Time is based on the acclaimed book of the same name by Madeleine L'Engle, which Reid first read in the 6th grade for a book report. While it won critical acclaim, it was controversial in that it was a Science Fiction novel with a young, female protagonist.

Despite its reputation as a masculine arena full of over-sexualized women and unsafe stereotypes, science-fiction has always been a space that champions diversity and explores themes that others are too afraid to touch. Joined by Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs.

"There's Caucasian kids, there's African-American kids, biracial kids, Filipino kids, there's Latino people in the film, Southeast Asian people in the film, and I'm proud of that", DuVernay told PBS NewsHour correspondent Jeffrey Brown in a recent interview.

But even setting aside the story's inherent lack of freshness, "Wrinkle" can't seem to find anything interesting to do with itself as it winds down its sole compelling thread of Meg trying to find her father.

Bullied at school tweener Meg (an appealing Storm Reid) helps care for her little brother, Charles Wallace (a scene-stealing Deric McCabe), while their lovely mother (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), another outstanding scientist, does the best she can on her own.

The cast grew incredibly close during the film, and Reese Witherspoon said she felt blessed to be a part of it. The three children then follow the Mrs.

After a particularly embarrassing presentation at NASA where Mr. Murry (not Dr. Murry, for some reason) is ridiculed for his tesseract concept, which involves traveling through space via your mind, not an over-priced rocket ship, he disappears. There they find "all the evil in the Universe", called simply "it" which is taking over.

Reid's performance was stirring and indeed proved while she was the only one who could have pulled off playing Meg.

The cinematic approach "fails at things the book won't fail at" but "succeeds at things that the book can't do" according to Lee. Which, Reese Witherspoon who plays Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling who plays Mrs. Storm Reid is excellent in the lead role and Deric McCabe is a scene stealer...excellent casting choices. However, when host Charlamagne Da God asked why the director shot down the chance to direct the Marvel film, she spoke about diverting her attention to a "more woman" focused project.

The visuals are also excellent throughout the movie. The colors are magnificent.

Unfortunately, that is where my praise ends.

However, the movie's Box Office success could somewhat be affected by the mixed reviews it has been now receiving from professional critics. Frequently the sharpest and funniest person in the room, Little Charles is one of the many great things about A Wrinkle in Time. I can do good in the world in a different way. Wrinkle also throws in the moral lessons from the very beginning from which the viewer can not escape.

"I feared that thinking of anything like that would compromise what I needed to do with this story".
