We were thrilled to get to see A Wrinkle In Time. I took my eight and twelve (almost thirteen) year old girls to see the film with me. In fact they had already seen reviews and wanted to see the movie. We were lucky to get to see the movie at the beautiful El Capitan Theatre. My oldest daughter is really into sci-fi and fantasy so right away she was drawn into the story. Both of my girls liked the movie and connected to the deeper meaning.
Based on the A Wrinkle in Time is a science fantasy novel written by American writer Madeleine L’Engle, first published in 1962 this movie is utterly delightful. It does the book justice and more because it truly brings the story to life with beautiful imagery and storytelling to match. The visuals are so beautiful that I felt like I had traveled through time myself.
For The Girls
I have to say this ones for the girls. My girls fell in love with the strong female cast. Storm Reid delivered with an incredible performance. I really think my girls could relate to her in fact, all girls can! It’s really the kind of movie that makes you believe in yourself again. The heroine in the story Meg Murry (Storm Reid) is a genius and we need more movies with girls like her!
Then there’s The Mrs. (Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which) Each of my girls connected to their favorite Mrs.
For The Heart
What I loved about this movie is that it really is one that hits the heart. It’s a very emotional movie that really does invite empathy. It’s the kind of movie that makes you feel like anything is possible. It’s the kind of movie that makes you rethink how you treat others. How we all so easily impact one another so easily and how you can find strength form within. I loved every message in this movie and was so happy my girls got to experience it.
In the movie the kids go to save their dad from “The IT” and really it’s just a dark force in the universe. That silent thing we tell ourselves that we don’t like about ourselves, or how we shove past others without a thought. I think everyone can relate to story. It leaves you wanting to do better. It really is a journey through empathy with dynamic visuals and a beautiful soundtrack to match. It wasn’t scary and my girls each understood the story and the deeper meaning.
Overall we loved the movie. There’s not many movies that allow me to connect to my girls in such a way. We loved it and can’t wait to see it again!
See A Wrinkle In Time in theaters everywhere this Friday March 9th!
