Have you been wondering if you should watch the movie Wonder?  I have seen the movie and I am going to tell you what I really thought of it. Wonder is a comedy/drama.

Wonder is about a boy named Auggie who was born with a rare face condition, and was constantly getting surgeries. He was homeschooled until his first day of fifth grade. His family was worried he would get bullied. The movie took place in his home in Manhattan, NewYork and at his school.

Jacob Tremblay was the main character as Auggie. Julia Roberts was his mom Isabel Pullman, and his dad Nate Pullman played as Owen Wilson. His sister Olivia Pullman was played by Izabela Vidovic, and lastly there was Millie Davis as Summer, Auggie’s friend. I think all of the actors did a pretty good job in the movie.

What I liked most about the movie was how it switched between all of the character’s points of views so you see everyone’s story, what happen to them, and what they think about Auggie. There is a scene that I do not like though, it was when Summer went to go sit by Auggie at lunch. I thought that this scene was very overdramatic. Summer yelled ” I SWEAR ON MY LIFE!!!” and I just feel like it was over exaggerated.

The lessons I learned were to accept people for who they are, don’t judge a book by its cover, and to be kind. I think people will learn to accept people for who they are,  and don’t judge people for their differences.

Wonder is rated PG, so I think people of all ages would enjoy this movie. Wonder is a drama/comedy, so I would recommend it to anyone interested in that movie genre. The film was good overall, it had a lot of good scenes, and had a good life lesson.

I give this movie a 4.5/5 because there was a scene that I did not like, but overall it was a good movie.
