WONDER

NZ HERALD Dominic Corry 4 stars out of 5. “The actors also help a great deal, with Tremblay once again displaying talent beyond his (very few) years. Although the parents have less of a role to play in the film than the poster may suggest, Roberts is a effective grounding presence, as is Owen Wilson as Auggie’s dad. Any cynicism about Wonder’s intentions is easily squashed by its emotionally forthright execution. You’re guaranteed to leave the theatre with a strong belief in the power of kindness.”

DOMINION Graeme Tuckett 4 stars out of 5. “It’s Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson’s names on the poster that will be keeping the ticket sellers busy. Cast, pleasingly, as Auggie’s parents, Roberts and Wilson radiate warmth, intelligence and compassion as a couple of almost too-good-to-true suburbanites. An old-fashioned three-hankie sob fest with sassy kids, catchy songs, kind adults and a cute dog. What’s not to like?”

Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.Directed by Stephen Chbosky (‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’, ‘The Four Corners of Nowhere’)Starring Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin, Izabela Vidovic, Ali Liebert, Millie Davis.
