A Wrinkle in Time

Let Disney’s newest film A Wrinkle in Time take you on a fascinating voyage to discover new worlds where there is hope for eternal love.

A Wrinkle in Time is directed by Ava DuVernay and is centred around the imaginary 1962 classic children’s tale from author Madeleine L’Engle’s book.

The science fantasy film entails the journey of 13-year-old tween Meg Murry (Storm Reid), her intelligent little brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCade) and school friend Calvin (Levi Miller) to find her long lost father Alex (Chris Pine) who mysteriously went missing during one of his scientific experiments.

Throughout the film Meg’s desire to find her father who was trying to invent human teleportation, lead’s the trio to three astral travellers (Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling) who show Meg that the space travel Tesseract that her father was working on is real.

The plot thickens as the mysterious Astral travellers reveal to Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace a way to tesseract, and before long the trio find themselves in another world Uriel.

This phenomenal planet is a visual array of vivid colours, strange creatures and the dangerous world named Camazotz.

Camazotz a threatening world which represents negativity, greed, selfishness and low self-esteem and has captured Meg’s father who is astoundingly still alive.

The expedition unfolds as the trio find themselves lost on the frightful planet Camazotz where things are not quite they seem, desperate to find Meg’s father Alex.

The astral travellers Mrs Which, Mrs Whatsit and Mrs Who, who were unable to assist the children on the wicked planet from its evil force, reunite as the film takes an unexpected twist where Meg finds her love for her brother weakening as he is taken hostage by the IT.

Using her love, Meg free’s her brother form the corruption and hatred powered by the IT, and the Murry family reunite once again with their parents and their long lost father.

A Wrinkle in Time is suitable for children, tween’s and adults alike who enjoy an adventurous tale, with a dose of science fiction.
