That same sentiment drives A Wrinkle in Time, director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's classic children's novel. This, along with its star-studded cast and messages of diversity, have surrounded the film with considerable hype. Her genius younger brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), is all in, as is a cute new guy friend, Calvin (Levi Miller), but Meg is afraid to "tesser" as it's called, to travel through several dimensions across space, in a quest to find her father. That's why we still talk about the intelligent world-building of "Harry Potter" and "The Wizard of Oz", where social hierarchies and centralized governments are essential to the makeup.
And, turns out, the whole thing is a nonsensical mess that never really amounts to anything. The lead character Meg Murry, who is canonically white in the novel, is biracial in the 2018 film; her mom is black and her father is white.
Book aficionados should take note that this is not, by any means, a literal translation of the book that is beloved by generations.
"When it came to a director I knew we had to get someone that could handle the emotional side of it".
What did you like about her character? Addressing themes of self-doubt and not conforming to others' ideals, Reid presents a hero many young girls will probably see themselves in. She has to go on a trip around the universe to figure that out. "It's valuable to have those early experiences to learn what you don't want".
I feel like there were a lot of challenges. "I can hold myself down, but it isn't me". Which is amusing, because watching the newest movie adaptation of the book made me feel like a kid again. There's moments when it hits you. If it was a half hour longer during a key sequence of the movie, it might actually be flawless.
There are so many hopes and expectations pinned on the new film version of "A Wrinkle in Time", I feel like it should be projected on giant bulletin boards instead of movie screens.
"A Wrinkle in Time" is directed by Ava DuVernay. But honestly, I just didn't care about him enough. Also coming out is "Gringo", an action comedy starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton that will be co-distributed by Amazon Studios and STX; along with Entertainment Studios' action drama "The Hurricane Heist". "She has a lovely vision and a lovely mind".
I loved traveling with Meg and the crew as they explored the wonders and perils of the universe.
Where would you like to see your career go after this film? Love is the real wrinkle in the time/space continuum. Hopefully I'll be able to become a future filmmaker, and I am producing stuff right now. It wasn't until 2010 when she created her first feature film, "I Will Follow", that she realized she had stories that needed to be told. In the book, Camazotz was peopled by automatons who did everything at the same time because they had surrendered their intellects and their individuality to one central power. I couldn't tell you now what it was about even if I tried.
The thing is, kids movies needn't be juvenile.
Ultimately - much the way Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was a lot of stuff and nonsense en route to revealing the identity of a surrogate Rosebud - DuVernay's "Wrinkle in Time" is a similarly tiresome, drawn-out exercise in order to conclude (metaphorically) with a Beatles song.
