There are books that are published that makes an impact on a person as they grow up.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is one of them.
My husband and I read it, our daughter read it. One day, our nieces, nephews and grand children will read it.
In it, we meet Meg, who is considered a misfit because she is not like her incredibly bright parents. Her brother, Charles, is also considered in the same light as Meg. Their Father has disappeared and the community they live in believe that he has run away and because of that, Meg and Charles, with their new bff Calvin, go on a quest through time to find Dr. Alex Murry.
These are not your typical heroes. Kind of like the Goonies with a philophical and physics tilt. It is really not a sci-fi tale, there is so much more to it.
The great thing about this movie is that it is being helmed by Ava DuVernay, it has been adapted by a woman and it has cast these wonderful actresses to play Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), Mrs. Which (Optah), Storm Reid as Meg Murry and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Kate Murry.
In this day and age, this is the movie to take your kids to. Save your money on the high action, but low in plot movies.
And if you are like me, take tissues.
