Here’s the premise: Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
Such an emotional movie; it is funny, sad, happy, and uplifting all at the same time. This is the kind of movie to take kids to, to teach them that we are all the same inside even when someone looks different.
Although all the actors did a fantastic job, Jacob Tremblay steals the show as Auggie, he will melt your heart throughout the movie. You feel his pain, his joy, and his triumph throughout every single scene he does.
Although a few things from the book were left out, Wonder stayed very true to the book thus giving the fans of the book a fantastic adaptation for us to enjoy. I recommend Wonder to those who read the book and for those who have not, bring your kids and start a dialogue.
