A fantasy story about a teenager who travels in space and time, guided by three magical astral travelers, to find her father.
This re-imagining of the classic American children’s novel takes young Meg Murry on a quest through time and space to find her missing father, travelling with her little brother, and their friend Calvin into alternate dimensions where they meet the otherworldly three Mrs – Who, Which and Whatsit. Selma director Ava DuVernay brings her fantastical vision to this heartwarming tale, sure to charm children and adults alike.
(2018 USA 109 mins)
A glorious slice of fantasy cinema in its purest form, A Wrinkle in Time revels delightedly in the traditions of the genre while delivering a thoroughly modern message. And although it may be unashamedly sentimental at points – this is Disney, after all – it never descends into mawkishness, because the real-world emotions on which it is built are solid, and universal … With no complicated philosophy beyond the redemptive power of love and forgiveness, DuVernay and co have created a film that’s a deliberate antidote to contemporary cynicism and inspirational viewing for young audiences, whatever their gender.
