Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. Lionsgate presents, in association with Walden Media and Participant Media, a Mandeville Films / Lionsgate production.
We haven't read the book yet, but both D and I are looking forward to watching the movie. She caught a commercial the other day, the same one that gets me all choked up every time I watch it, and asked if we could go and see it. Since I know her heart, and because the commercials alone get me, I know that when we go to watch, I'll be bringing along a few packages of tissues. I am really looking forward to D's reaction to the movie overall and the conversations it will likely bring up between us.
WONDER is going to be great! I think Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson are a fantastic pairing. Jacob Tremblay and Izabela Vidovic seem perfect in their roles as Auggie and Via as well. I cannot wait to watch!
