Storm Reid reveals the Lasting Significance of A Wrinkle in Time


Based on the 1962 novel by Madeline L'Engle, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to capture the magic that has made the book a longtime children's favorite. This is hardly a passive, by-the-numbers checklist of plot points, the fate of most YA books translated to the big screen. "How did they even think that would work?" Who from "A Wrinkle in Time" lives in. This is the only part of the PG-rated Disney film that might be a little frightening for the youngest children, but the Girl Scouts loved it.

A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay is a badass.

"[Meg] says, 'Do you trust me?' in the movie". That's ridiculous. Movies have been around for over 100 years, this is something that should have happened a long, long time ago.

"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.

That, of course, has nothing to do with the actual quality of the film.

Ultimately, the emotional core of A Wrinkle in Time is simple and free of cynicism: Love conquers hate. Protagonist Meg Murry (newcomer Storm Reid, in what should be a star-making performance) is a hostile, depressed, self-loathing girl, filled with grief and uncertainty over the disappearance of her scientist father (a better-than-usual Chris Pine). Alex was right on the brink of some incredible scientific discovery - something that could potentially unlock all the secrets of the universe, or something like that - before he disappeared. A Wrinkle in Time is a very relevant film for now and delivers a nice message to the younger generation; I'm just afraid that no one is going to see it. And for good reason - Alex is actually alive. It is tough on Meg and makes her a sort of pariah at school. Meg is played by Storm Reid and the three beings are played by Mindy, Oprah, and Reese. "I'd just come off "Selma" and "13th" I felt like they [were] masculine".

And, turns out, the whole thing is a nonsensical mess that never really amounts to anything.

A Wrinkle in Time may not be as strong as it could be, but it is well-intentioned, admirably earnest, and gloriously weird in ways that can still connect with audiences. DuVernay swings for the fences, determined to create a sci-fi film unlike anything you've ever seen.

After watching the trailer of A Wrinkle in Time, one gets reminded of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.

If only there was a good script to accompany those bold chances. We're built on diversity, so the same goes in storytelling. To make the trip, the gang uses a "tesseract", a form of space travel only slightly less stressful than Delta.

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. In these final act, the film suddenly finds itself relying on Deric McCabe to carry the entire movie - not the greatest idea, as McCabe doesn't have the same acting talent or charisma as other actors his age.
