The 2018 movie A Wrinkle In Time is about a girl, Meg Murry (Stormie Reid) and her little brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) who have been without their father, Mr. Murry (Chris Pine), for five years.  Joined by Meg’s classmate, Calvin O’ Keefe (Levi Miller), while being guided by three wise women, these three brave young people set out to face the evil of the Universe in hopes of finding Mr. Murry.

The 2018 film A Wrinkle in Time is a remake of the 2003 remake of the 1983 original film, based on the award-winning book series.  This film is my favorite movie of all time because it is rated PG so the film is appropriate for kids and and teaches teenagers and grown ups a valuable lesson in life.

The film describes all the negativity in the world and calls it the IT.  The IT can make you think poorly and look down on other people and yourself. In the movie, Meg thinks poorly of herself. She doesn’t believe she is pretty enough and it’s hard for her to trust other people. This relates to teenagers because they care too much about the smallest things, such as what they’re going to wear and being jealous of other people.

One of my most favorite scenes of the film is when the Misses decide to show Meg how they are going to find her father and save the universe from its darkness.

This film is a little hard to understand for those who aren’t very deep into thinking about the lesson being taught. I rate this film an 8 out of 10, the reason for that is because in the book Ms. Whatsit turns into a pegasus, but in the film she looks more of a flying pieces of lettuce. (You’ll get that when you see the movie!) The book, as is usually the case, is better than the film.

My favorite character in the movie is Charles Wallace. His intelligence and his most loving heart is what really stands out.

I highly recommend that you watch the movie.
