Just in Time for Spring Break

It is the first hundred-million-dollar movie to be directed by a woman of color, Ava DuVernay, all of which is to say big expectations. I was in the fourth grade.

I want the audience to know that they can be themselves and they are ideal just the way they are, they shouldn't let anyone tell them any different.

In her book, "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art", she wrote, "Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys".

After so much hype and promotion, this goes down as one of the big disappointments so far this year. The lead character Meg Murry, who is canonically white in the novel, is biracial in the 2018 film; her mom is black and her father is white. Because of her low self-esteem, Meg can not seem to fathom why anyone would compliment her or think that she is special. "A Wrinkle in Time" has three: wise Mrs.

Its protagonist is a smart, but awkward middle-school girl, and its cast includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, making it a female-empowerment party that is very much of the moment.

The story of A Wrinkle In Time is as much about Meg's journey to find her strength, her belief in herself and in the power of love, as it is about visiting attractive, fantastical and then frightening planets. Cry if I need to and step away and know that it won't stay like this. This, along with its star-studded cast and messages of diversity, have surrounded the film with considerable hype. Their space spanning journey starts out well enough, on a attractive green planet that is one of the more spectacular scenes of the film, but they soon find out that their search is really a rescue mission. It was so fun!

Ava DuVernay's big screen adaptation of Madeline L'Engle's classic YA novel, opening in theaters this weekend, is a lovely, big-hearted story about the power of love. She quotes Shakespeare, Gandhi and other notable figures throughout the film. There's likely another version of this movie that's less odd, that's more straightforward, more predictable, and more lifeless. This makes what should be an exciting journey into a painfully boring - and long - lecture.

The Boston Herald's James Verniere is more cutting, pointing to the movie's weaknesses in sci-fi plotting and decent visuals, as well as its reliance on stunning audiences with costuming. She isn't quick to trust, but she keeps an open mind throughout the rescue mission. Michael Peña portraying a red-eyed charmer who hypnotizes Charles Wallace so that he becomes a mouthpiece for The It? The relationship between brother and sister in this film is one that most parents dream of, and is actually believable. The focus is strictly on Meg, brother Charles Wallace and Meg's newfound friend Calvin (Levi Miller).

I could have gone without Calvin.

"My father is alive", says Meg (Storm Reid). That sounds harsh, but he could have been excluded and the story wouldn't have changed.

This is a movie that may even bore the kids. Who, on the other hand, feels like a character that could have been written out given her lack of importance in the movie. I can only picture kids trying to wrap their heads around it, but maybe it's inventive enough to not matter.

L'Engle's book has always been considered hard to adapt, largely because of its heady science fiction packaged for young-adult readers. "I know that there are these other doors that are being knocked down, barriers that are being broken, I accept that".
