Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time takes audiences across space and time examining the nature of darkness versus light and, finally, the triumph of love. One girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides leads to embracing one’s individuality.
The synopsis of the film suggests that the story is of about Meg Murry. Meg is a middle school student who just wants to fit in. She’s intelligent and gifted and is also the daughter of two world-renowned physicists, but she’s yet to find out about herself. Mr Murry’s disappearance leaves Meg devastated and it is then that her brother Charles Wallace introduces her to three celestial beings, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force.
Directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Jennifer Lee based upon the novel by Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time stars Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who. Storm Reid plays Meg Murry in the movie.
The film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Mrs. Murry, Michael Peňa as Red, Zach Galifianakis as The Happy Medium and Chris Pine as Mr. Murry.
