A Wrinkle in Time is now in theaters. But beyond Meg's attractive locks, the weirdo wigs (one appears to be an inert crimson fox perched on Witherspoon's head) and scary clothes, "A Wrinkle in Time" suggests a pop American version of those Narnia films, complete with allegorical lessons and the usual platitudes, including, ye gods, "Be true to yourself". What I loved is that she challenged me and said, 'Can you write a scene that disproves Einstein's Theory of Relativity?' and I was like, 'Sure!' Fundamentally, I knew what she was asking.
How do you pick yourself back up when self-doubt starts to creep back in?
"It's such an important story to be told", says Reid, who had done a book report on the Madeleine L'Engle novel in the 6th grade. "I'm still a young girl and I do look up to people. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must look deep within herself and embrace her flaws to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness closing in on them".
"I wanted Mrs. of all different shapes, sizes, culture, races", remarked DuVernay. I just cried during the opening of Up again last week, so I'm going with the latter.
Actor Mindy Kaling fits that bill. "She knows my name!" She sat down with me and went through all the things she loved and the things she was interested in doing with it, and I could see it. Which (Winfrey as the wise sage), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon as the spunky communicator) and Mrs. Which, the eldest of the three.
The news took Oprah by surprise, as she expressed her concerns about Reese juggling so many ventures at once, while also raising three children. Meg, her little brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and her mother Dana (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, "Beauty and the Beast") miss him, and wonder where he is.
Ava DuVernay isn't interested in helming a "Star Wars" movie. Respectively, the characters played by them are known as Happy Medium and The It. Galifianakis got choked up when he spoke about working with DuVernay and his castmates.
Also, I appreciate the fairly rare "PG" rating. I hope a lot of young boys will go see it.
Disney's made-for-TV version of A Wrinkle in Time is, well, a made-for-TV movie. A sci-fi, children's film directed by a Black woman, Ava DuVernary, starring an unknown actress named Storm Reid and a seriously inclusive cast that isn't tokenism, but fair representation. In 2015, Selma, the drama about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. Previously, she also turned down offers to helm Marvel's "Black Panther", saying that it's not a "DuVernay film". She really values the creative process and the people that surround her that are helping craft her vision. Seeing it all from the viewpoint of a twelve-year-old I guess it is somewhat appealing but for older audiences, it just doesn't work which is a shame because it had so much potential. "Let me try to help you out here". "That makes me well inside". There are occasional moments of inspiration and the visuals do impress, but one leaves the movie longing for a more emotional experience.
