A Wrinkle In Time Is A Cosmic Trip Worth Taking


Kaling revealed the epic present from Oprah while talking about their new film, "A Wrinkle in Time", on Thursday night's episode of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert". Storm Reid is excellent in the lead role and Deric McCabe is a scene stealer...excellent casting choices.

In case you haven't read the book, we won't get more specific.

In order to rescue their dad-who, in a turn of events sure to displease Neil deGrasse Tyson and other stodgy literalists, has discovered that you can use your mind to travel across the universe powered by the frequency of love (don't ask)-Meg and Charles Wallace will need the help of the Mrs. Ws: Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Who (Mindy Kaling), and Which (Oprah Winfrey). Nonetheless, "A Wrinkle in Time" still has the misfortune of feeling like it's stealing from the very things that stole from it.

A Wrinkle in Time is a science fiction fantasy adventure that's packed with wonderful messages for children about putting family first and believing in yourself.

She explained: 'I'm still hanging out with friends, watching cooking shows. Which towers over everyone else (she's Oprah) and has silver eyebrows and lipstick and a wardrobe resembling Ursula's of "The Little Mermaid".

When tracking for the adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's sci-fi novel first came out three weeks ago, opening weekend estimates were set at approximately $35 million against a production budget of at least $103 million, according to California Film Commission reports.

Its central character is Meg (Storm Reid), the daughter of two scientists.

"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. I've seen a few questions about whether the movie might be too scary for children but I strongly disagree - it seems tailor-made for them.

You'll see a couple of cameos from other famous actors later in the film, including somebody from "The Martian". "She did it. But you don't do that without it taking a toll on you, and eventually that catches up with you". "To have a film with so much inclusion and representation is important because I feel like representation matters". "It was kind of like the United Nations", Reid says. But the movie is so busy trying to give her a greater sense of importance, it can not even begin to incorporate all of the source material's themes into anything remotely resembling a cohesive whole. Meg doesn't have any superpowers. I don't know, I have a very soft spot for her. Which, whose larger than life - but of course she would be; she's played by Oprah - with diamond eyebrows and an ethereal air filled with portend. We're built on diversity, so the same goes in storytelling. They've heard Alex calling out for help, and they want to take Meg to go find him. Not even a new Sade song ("Flower of the Universe") or Chris Pine can smooth out the mess that is "A Wrinkle in Time". "Can I tap into the 11-year-old, 12-year-old and 13-year-old in me, and find that light that I used to have, that dreamer?"
