Opinion

From Library Staff

Full of star power and visual stimulation, the movie lost sight of the heart of the book.

If your tween loved this classic book, give this movie a go, but be prepared for some Hollywood deviations.

This movie has problems, mainly that it's boring and none of the child actors are compelling or entertaining. Oprah as one of the angels carries the movie whenever she's on screen.

The 2003 TV adaptation of L'Engle's book by Susan Shilliday and John Kent Harrison has a better screenplay and better performances than this stinker by Ava DuVernay.

I loved the books as a kid, tried rereading them as an adult and they just weren't the same, but the movie wonderfully reminded me of a bit of that magic I felt before!

It kind of just threw a lot at you at once. It made me want to re-read the book to get a better grasp and more detail. Creative movie, nice CG but just a lot at once with little to no explanation or reason. Would recommend the book more.

An AWFUL movie! It is pathetic that they took something as wise, possibly profound, as the book "A Wrinkle In Time" and turned it into such an idiotic, shallow movie that has no message or cohesion that even a kid could follow or enjoy. 115 minutes of agony you don't need to inflict on yourself or your worst enemy.

It's pretty obvious that whoever adapted the book to make this movie did not understand the book.
Nobody who read and understood the book would like this movie.
And anybody who saw this movie but did not read the book would be totally mystified as to what it was all about.
Two hours out of my life that I'll never get back.
And what was up with Oprah's outfits? She looked like someone who got their invitation to the Star Trek theme party when it was too late to plan a costume.

I enjoyed the premise of the movie. A child learning confidence in a positive way. While entertaining for most of the movie I found that near the end of it, in the dark place was way too long getting to the point. As that was the only boring part I gave it four stars.

I'll be honest: I don't remember anything from this movie being in the book, but if you separate the two, this is one of the best kids' movies I've seen in a while. It has a powerful message of self worth and self esteem, so powerful, it made me cry.

I watched this movie because Brie Larson said it was a love letter to women of color. Well, there were certainly a lot of women of color in the movie.
I haven't read the book or watched the older movie. I enjoyed the more realistic parts (school scenes) and the moments of depth and philosophy, but all the supernatural stuff came across as just ridiculous.

As with most books made into movies, it was VERY DISAPPOINTING. The book explained things, the movie was just an adventure with no point except to rescue the dad. I suggest everyone read the book and skip the movie.

I don't wonder and I don't care!
- Hmm. Well, maybe that's your problem!

Yeah! There's some things I need to say to my dad. Maybe now I can finally say them. It's funny how it took a trip around the universe to get me there.

I wanted to shake hands with the universe. But I should've been holding yours.

And you love me! That's why you make milk for me on stormy nights. That's why you check in on me during recess. That's why you wanted to find Daddy, to make me happy! That's why the Misses took a chance on me. Because they felt your love. And you should love me because I deserve to be loved!
