A Wrinkle in Time: A Beautiful, But Surface-Level, Film

  • “My prayer is that Hollywood does right by that girl. I feel like the sad part of it is that a beautiful black actress at 14 may never have another part as full-bodied as,” Du Vernay said. “I just hope this industry does right by her

Disney's highly-anticipated big-budget adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time hits theaters on March 9, bringing the beloved sci-fi novel to life with a star-studded cast. But beyond Meg's attractive locks, the weirdo wigs (one appears to be an inert crimson fox perched on Witherspoon's head) and scary clothes, "A Wrinkle in Time" suggests a pop American version of those Narnia films, complete with allegorical lessons and the usual platitudes, including, ye gods, "Be true to yourself". You see Ava and all of that Black girl magic in every frame. "You're gonna make it through by finding something in yourself that guides you'".

There's been a lot of discussion lately about the importance of people seeing movie characters who "look like them".

Reid is simply outstanding in her ability to portray Meg as a fully fleshed and believable character, filled with both resilience and doubt. "It was a very different process for me".

Actor Mindy Kaling fits that bill. I'm sure she planned on just talking about that project, but if you've ever seen any of Sway Calloway's interviews, then you know that his introductions are lengthy. Who (Mindy Kaling). On their journey, they meet a sassy seer (Zach Galifianakis) and a red-eyed puppet (Michael Peña). Who primarily speaks in historical quotes; and Witherspoon, who gets some mileage out of Mrs. Whatsit's lack of confidence in Meg, which she openly expresses to Charles Wallace in full view of Meg. Which (Oprah Winfrey), a 50-foot ghost woman whose sole goal is to reign in Mrs. Whatsit and spout words of encouragement like the Oracle from "The Matrix". Which, the eldest of the three. Not only that, this Meg hears that she is powerful, that she is special, that everything she thought was a fault is a strength. Meg's got braces, glasses, and a short fuse, especially about her father, played by Chris Pine. "They were all really wonderful to work with".

"I think when you're a stand-up comic, you have a... not a chip on your shoulder, but that's where you come from and to be involved in such a big, big movie like this, it makes me..." And so Meg's struggle to find herself, her voice and her place - as well as her joy and amazement when she succeeds - felt just as relevant and real to me as when I was a kid. "I'd come back with costumes, and they'd say, 'Oh, you have all these ideas, why don't we do this?' We had really, really nice continuous feedback between the three of us".

"I wanted it to be something that was sentimental to me", he said, "that made it feel like she was part of this movie". I hope a lot of young boys will go see it.

The Black Panther director recalls how DuVernay, a publicist turned director, was "already one of [his] heroes" before he met her, given that he admired her 2010 and 2012 films I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere.

Now Reese reveals she will be holding a series of filmmaking workshops for young female directors later this year (18) in a bid to nurture new talent. It's just too much story for the time it had to tell it. How much do I have? But now and then, when they say, 'is such and such in there?' Like the other day, someone said, 'Does Mrs. Whatsit say wild nights are my glory?' I said, 'Yes! With this, we had the Disney machine.

DuVernay's "A Wrinkle in Time" is a science fantasy film based on the novel written in 1962.

The film also includes Oscar victor Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and the legendary Oprah Winfrey, who play three women from the universe helping Meg find her father.
