Wrinkle in Time, A (PG)

Wrinkle in Time, A (PG)

Adventure, Family, Fantasy

After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.

The critical consensus

For children, the movie adaptation will likely be a fast-favourite because of its cinematic elements, but adults who have held onto A Wrinkle In Time as a staple of their childhood, they will likely find some magic missing in the movie.

This spectacular adventure sometimes wanders across the borders of invention into artificiality, but finds its feet when it focuses in on its characters and their relationships.

***(*)(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 08/03/2018

DuVernay and co have created a film that's a deliberate antidote to contemporary cynicism and inspirational viewing for young audiences, whatever their gender.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 19/03/2018

Storm Reid gives a pint-sized powerhouse performance. But there’s little else to admire here.

**(*)(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 19/03/2018

Reid’s a fine lead, but DuVernay’s usually firm footing wobbles in the CGI clouds of Disney fantasy.

When characters utter toe-curling lines like “I wanted to shake hands with the universe, when I should have been holding yours”, it is little wonder that any lingering sense of mystery and magic very quickly disappears.

A Wrinkle in Time has charm.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 22/03/2018

A Wrinkle In Time is obvious and wears its heart on its sleeve but it still offers imaginative, warm-hearted children's entertainment over Easter.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 23/03/2018

Ava DuVernay’s sci-fi adventure carries an important message but fails to engage emotionally.
