Wonder - Written Movie Review


Wonder is a 2017 family / drama film directed by Stephen Chbosky and stars Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman (Jacob Tremblay), a boy with Treacher-Collins Syndrome who enters fifth grade, attending a public school for the first time. Now I never read the book so I can't compare to the movie, but I thought the movie was good. It was nice to see a movie showing awareness of Treacher-Collins Syndrome. It's a genetic disorder that causes disfigurement of the face, which can lead into other complications at birth. I thought the cast did very well in this film. Jacob Tremblay did an outstanding job playing August. Everyone had great chemistry together. Though, my favorite part would have to be the scenes with Jacob Tremblay and Owen Wilson. This film kind of reminded me of that one movie with Robin Williams called Jack. Both films had similar formulas about boys having a disorder and their journeys being accepted by society. This film also has character development where we not only get to know August, but we get to learn his sister's point-of-view of having a brother with a disorder and a kid who befriends August. It's a formula that I did like, but it sometimes made the film's editing seem off. Another complaint I had was that it feels like they left a lot out from the book because this film is very straightforward and quick. Some scenes felt very rushed in parts. There are parts where I felt like we needed to see more explanation. Overall , it's a good family movie. I'm going to give Wonder a 7.5/10. What were your thoughts on this film? Leave me a comment below and I'll see you in the next review.
