What the Internet Says

“‘A Wrinkle in Time’ is for all the girls – and boys, and non-binary kids, and teens and adults and the elderly – who've ever been a Meg. It's a flawed film that entreats us to love flawed things, up to and including our very own selves.” – Mashable

“Nobody will miss the lessons of the movie, and they are fine and timely lessons. Those who take them most to heart will find their way back to Madeleine L’Engle.” ­– New York Times

Parents and kids alike will enjoy this endearing story. With its cast of well-known actresses, this movie is light-hearted and inspiring.  You’ll definitely want to see this one with the kids.

Starring Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

R. Horror. Directed by Johannes Roberts. 1h 25m.

Juiced up with clever kills, a throwback soundtrack, and a unique new setting, Roberts’ film also makes the case that horror franchises aren’t dead yet, they just need some new blood.” ­­– Indie Wire
