Wonder

release date November 17, 2017



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.

Based on the novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Read the book before you see the movie!
You won't be sorry.

I've always thought it better the other way around. Watch the movie first then read the book. That way the movie is less likely to disappoint. Jacob Tremblay is such a wonderful young actor too.

Well, I finally bought the DVD and can't say it was anything special. Good acting from Jacob Tremblay and Noah Jupe but what should have been a dramatic story was glossed over with typical Hollywood hype. The film tried to show a boy facing up to problems because of his disfigurement but it all ended up slick and rather nice. The boys at school acted and said things like grown ups instead of kids. Just another typically glossy American production and ending up as an oh so affair.    Huh
