Wonder (PG)

Drama, Family

Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.

The critical consensus

Chbosky manages a neat high-wire act, plucking your heartstrings without coating the story in bucket-loads of sugar. Much of this is down to the cast – notably the excellent Tremblay, expertly backed by Roberts and Wilson. And, as family entertainment goes, Wonder is able to cater for everyone.

Sensitive, and funnier than anticipated.

Wonder makes serious and perceptive points about friendship, coming of age, endurance and basic human decency. It shows us plenty of bad and despicable behaviour but it puts that behaviour in context.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 29/11/2017

Wonder is a tearjerker but it is well crafted, intelligent and sincere. Make sure you take a hankie.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 01/12/2017

It sometimes over-plays its hand but, anchored by a terrific Jacob Tremblay, Wonder is a warm persuasive argument for tolerance. And it’s always great to have Julia Roberts back on the big screen.

Strong performances and shifting viewpoints steer the story of a disfigured boy overcoming bullying clear of mawkishness.
