A Wrinkle in Time's Ending, Explained

Chadwick Boseman in a scene from

It looked wonderful, diverse, powerful, unique and trippy. The adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's eerie, mystical young adult sci-fi novel from 1962 was budgeted at over $100 million, the largest budget a woman of color has been handed for a film.

Disney released their highly anticipated movie "A Wrinkle in Time" this past weekend.

In charge! During the interview, Oprah praised Wrinkle director Ava DuVernay. One day Meg's brilliant younger brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), introduces Meg to three supernatural beings: Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), only speaks in famous quotes, citing legends like Gandhi as well as poets and rappers. As soon as they leave a planet, nothing that happened there will be mentioned for the remainder of the film making each world feel disconnected.

Wrinkle focusing on and celebrating its own racial diversity also comes off as a bit freakish in a 2018 America that has been sitting through racially diverse films for decades now. It is most definitely not bad but, for a film where many awesome things happen, it is seriously lacking in magic.

Lee admits that while Christian themes are central in L'Engle's book version of "A Wrinkle in Time", she made a decision to leave those elements out in the movie for a more inclusive message that doesn't focus on any one religion. The movie has great visuals and stunts but never gives you the reason for them. And with Calvin, Meg finds the first person outside the family circle who appreciates her best, most-complicated self.

'Sorry To Bother You' First Look Trailer Out From Annapurna - SXSW
The film, written and directed by rapper and The Coup co-founder, Boots Riley , premiered at Sundance and is now showing at SXSW . Sorry to Bother You doesn't have a United Kingdom release date confirmed yet, but it's hitting the States this summer on July 6.

The following article contains spoilers for Disney's A Wrinkle In Time, in theaters now. There's no word on the film's production budget, but unless it was made for a couple million dollars, it won't make it out of this sticky situation.

Eventually Farrar, Straus & Giroux took on A Wrinkle In Time, even though the publisher admitted he was "afraid". "Through that, I have confidence that there are people out there...interested in looking in through the window of the world of my story, in the same way that I enjoy watching films by filmmakers of all kinds..."

The thing about a lot of children's literature is that it structures itself episodically.

A Wrinkle in Time follows the life of a 13 year old girl named Meg Murry (Storm Reid). She has a power and a vulnerability about her that many people don't get to bring on their big break.

Filmed in New Zealand, Oprah said the location "exceeded" her expectations. The lines are not particularly uplifting or inspiring and Winfrey doesn't give them as much oomph as one might hope based on who she is. In the movie, the Happy Medium is played by Zach Galifianakis. It's a push and pull situation that's mostly successful. It makes the reunion that much more bittersweet and means that Dr. Murry and Charles Wallace never really had a chance to get to know each other before the former went missing. It all seems like a means to an end rather than a real narrative in a lot of senses.

And with that, the film feels very targeted at children. The film has a multitude of issues that must be addressed. DuVernay's film focuses intently on her struggle for objective, using her as a stand-in figure for a world of intelligent children left behind to an emotional insecurity they can't find their way out of. Still, a part of me still wishes "A Wrinkle in Time" was better than it is, if only because I know that the potential for it to be great was there, but settled at being merely fine.
